Summary
A collection of four films, two by Yasujiro Ozu and two by Kenji Mizoguchi - considered to be two of the greatest Japanese film directors of all time. 'Floating Weeds' (1959), one of Yasujiro Ozu's final films, is a remake of one of his own silent features. Komajuro (Ganjiro Nakamura), is the leader of a travelling Kabuki acting troupe. After they arrive in a small coastal town, Komajuro is reunited with a former lover - much to the consternation of his current one - and meets his illegitimate son, who does not know that the actor is his father. Ozu's penultimate film, 'The End of Summer' (1961), is an examination of the difficulties faced by the Kohayagawa family as they struggle to adapt their traditional values to a rapidly changing post-war Japan. Elderly patriach Manbei tries to marry off two of his daughters, struggles to keep the family's sake business going, and rekindles an old affair. 'The Life of O-Haru' (1952) is widely considered to be Kenji Mizoguchi's masterpiece. In 17th-century Japan, Oharu (Kinuyo Tanaka) loses her honour when she is defiled by a samurai. Her father then forces her to become the mistress of a great lord. However, once she has provided a male heir, Oharu is thrown out of the palace and descends into a life of degradation and poverty. 'The Lady of Musashino' (1951) is Mizoguchi's evocative portrayal of life in post-war Japan. The film captures the tension between the moral decadence of the post-war era, and the traditional values of Japanese society. It tells the story of Michiko (Kinuyo Tanaka), a young wife trapped in an empty, loveless marriage, who becomes involved in a disastrous affair - and ultimately finds herself let down by both men
