Product description

Product Description

Floating Weeds is one of the final films directed by the legendary Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu. A remake of one of his own silent features, it tells the story of a travelling Kabuki acting troupe, led by Komajuro (Ganjiro Nakamura) who arrive in a small coastal town. There, Komajuro is reunited with his former lover Oyoshi and their illegitimate son, who is unaware that the itinerant actor is his father. But the reunion provokes the jealousy of Sumiko, Komajuro's current mistress, who plots a devastating revenge. Beautifully composed and superbly played, Floating Weeds is one of Ozu's most affecting, poignant and powerful films.

Review

"Ozu's familiar combination of melancholy regret and buoyant comic gaiety is beguilingly in evidence. " --Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"A poignant tale of everyday folk; their lives, loves and losses, rendered with exquisite care, compassion and no small measure of humanity by one of the masters of Japanese cinema. " --Film 4

"A thoroughly absorbing affair" --Total Film --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.
