One master director's two interpretations of the same story in one 2-disc collection! An early masterpiece from prolific Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu, the 1934 silent film "A Story of Floating Weeds" departed from his typical slapstick fare to focus onsomething more thematically and visually poignant. The film centers on Kihachi, the leader of a traveling band of actors who returns to his small village, has a shaky reunion with a former flame, and finds that the presence of his illegitimate son threatens his relationship with his current partner. In "Floating Weeds" (1959), Ozu revisits his celebrated classic in sound and color, moving the location to a seaside town and giving the story a somewhat lighter tone. A master of small details, don't miss outon the evolution of the lyrical auteur who was considered "the most Japanese of all filmmakers."
