Moving, realistic, and a glimpse into another world - Floating Weeds review by MS

Spoiler Alert
12/08/2015

Although a little slow in one or two places, this film always held my interest -- partly because the characters were completely believable, and beautifully acted, and partly because it was was a vivid picture of a world that's disappeared. The Kabuki plays shown were fascinating in themselves.
