I had an opportunity to watch 'Floating Weeds' vy Yasujirô Ozu.

 

Looks like the characters looking directly towards the lens during dialogue?

 

Is this a style of composition by Ozu?

 

Any observations from anyone?

What is the perspective behind that composition? 

 

Usually character looking to the lens would be followed by a subjective shot?
