Tokyo Story (1953)
Kyôko Kagawa: Kyôko Hirayama
Kyoko : [after the rest of the family had left] I think they should have stayed a bit longer.
Noriko : But they're busy.
Kyoko : They're selfish. Demanding things and leaving like this.
Noriko : They have their own affairs.
Kyoko : But you have yours too. They're selfish.
Noriko : But Kyoko...
Kyoko : Wanting her clothes right after her death. I felt so sorry for poor mother. Even strangers would have been more considerate!
Noriko : But look Kyoko. At your age I thought so too. But children do drift away from their parents. A woman has her own life, apart from her parents, when she becomes Shige's age. She meant no harm I'm sure. They have to look after their own lives.
Kyoko : I wonder: I won't ever be like that. Then what's the point of family?
Noriko : But children become like that, gradually.
Kyoko : Then... you, too?
Noriko : I may become like that in spite of myself.
Kyoko : Isn't life disappointing?
Noriko : Yes, it is.
