...there isn't a detail in Floating Weeds that isn't meant to be carefully seen.

Observer [UK]

This is a vibrant movie, one of his few in colour, and touches on universal themes through the story of a middle-aged actor and his young mistress coming with a second-rate kabuki company to a small coastal town.

Ozu's familiar combination of melancholy regret and buoyant comic gaiety is beguilingly in evidence.

Yasujiro Ozu's film is in color, and the screen compositions are incredible.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A variation on the theme of the family that pervades nearly all Ozu's pictures.

It's slow, slightly old fashioned, and one of Ozu's weaker works, but even in one of his lesser works there's still much to marvel at and appreciate.

As with much of Ozu's ouevre, verges on the melodramatic, but shows just enough restraint to prevent descent into such syrupy realms

The sheer beauty of Ozu's exquisite (and typically eccentric) compositions and the expressive use of sound tell all you need know about the characters, their emotions and relationships.

Ozu is, however, very special in his technique, which by the end of his career, had become very modest, lucid and lovely.

Like all of Ozu's work, it's incredibly human, and that can be a rarity in the artificial world of the cinema.

Richly atmospheric, with its expressive use of colour, lyrical cutaways, and masterly interior compositions -- predominantly shot from Ozu's trademark low-level camera position -- impressively illustrating the director's visual artistry.

All Ozu's films are great.

July 16, 2003

A poignant tale of everyday folk; their lives, loves and losses, rendered with exquisite care, compassion and no small measure of humanity by one of the masters of Japanese cinema.

His scenes pack far more emotional punch than any of Jerry Bruckheimer's explosive special effects.

His spare, slow-moving films are not for all tastes, but once the rhythms are accepted, Ozu's work offers a unique emotional experience.

Sooner or later, everyone who loves movies comes to Ozu. He is the quietest and gentlest of directors, the most humanistic, the most serene. But the emotions that flow through his films are strong and deep.
