Reviews of A Story of Floating Weeds (1934) and related work

A Story of Floating Weeds (1934Moving picture, 86 minutes)

Ozu Yasujirō (director).

Seen in 2015.

I like the side story of the kid trying to save his piggy bank from the rest of the troupe: very Ozu. The perspective on entertainers here is a little more sympathetic than that of The Blue Angel (1930).
