This week’s installment in Cal State Northridge’s semester-long tribute to Japanese master Yasujiro Ozu is a double feature: gangster drama Dragnet Girl at 7 and the original, silent version of A Story of Floating Weeds, from 1934, immediately after. Ozu’s own color remake of the film, which came about a full 25 years later, is regarded as one of his many classics, but the original lays the groundwork. Ozu’s movies occasionally require more patience than those of his contemporary Akira Kurosawa, but it’s rewarded with subtly moving portrayals of family life in all its ups and downs.
