The Floating WeedsDirector: Yasujiro Ozu
This 1959 Ozu production centers on the likable but fallible leader of an itinerant acting troupe ("floating weeds" being the Japanese name for such groups), Kimajuro, played brilliantly by Ganjiro Nakamura. The film opens on a lazy, stagnant river as the troupe lays spread about on a boat deck drifting downstream. It's obvious that they're a ragged bunch as they sit

I have to say that I was initially more interested in the music and visual aspect of this film than the actual story during the first half. Then my attention somehow shifted and I became aware of how real the characters were being portrayed throughout. I've now watched it about three times and find it very fascinating. There is a good love story in here with some very fine acting. Primary colors and rainfall are highlighted as well.
