Floating Weeds

Towards the end of his career, Japanese master Yasujirô Ozu returned to a story he had made some 25 years earlier as a silent, Ukigusa monogatari [A Tale of Floating Weeds, aka A Story of Floating Weeds], for a magnificent colour reworking, photographed by legendary cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa (Rashômon, Ugetsu monogatari). Encompassing a novelistic range of emotions and tones with the utmost delicacy, Floating Weeds stands tall even amidst a body of work as extraordinary as Ozu’s. Making its worldwide Blu-ray debut, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Floating Weeds [Ukigusa] in a beautiful new high-definition restoration.
