Yasujiro Ozu's eloquently simple films capture the lives of Japanese middle-class families with a warmth and humanity that is especially appealing to Western audiences. Floating Weeds tells the story of an aging actor who is reunited with his former lover and their illegitimate son. The actor's current mistress, enraged by his waning attention, spins an elaborate web of deceit that leads to heartbreak for them all. A stirring visual poem, Floating Weeds beautifully details the joy and pain of everyday life.
