A Story of Floating Weeds

86 minutes

One of the last of Yasujiro Ozu's silent films, which he remade toward the end of his career, this 1934 feature has a fairly standard soap-opera plot—the lead actor in an impoverished acting troupe returns to a remote mountain village to meet his illegitimate son for the first time—but, needless to say, the Japanese master works wonders with it. Like other Ozu films of the period, this has a great deal of camera movement; stylistic purification would later lead him to eliminate such expressive devices.
