Absolutely not. It's a 1935 sound film. And I've never heard before that the 1930 film was co-directed with Kinugasa. I wonder if the French IMDB has made a mistake.

Are you sure you are not referring to "Tojin Okichi" (Mistress of a 
Foreigner or Okichi the Foreigner) which was co-directed with Teinosuke
