Trivia

The starting point of the screenplay was Thomas Raucat's novel "L'honorable partie de campagne" about a Frenchman discovering Japan in 1925. But it was modified to such an extent that it is not even mentioned in the credits. See more »

Nagasaki mes amours.
29 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Shot in color,with a comfortable budget for the time "Typhon sur Nagasaki" ,in spite of two great French actors is not only a disaster movie:it's also a disaster itself.After a first part,which drags on and on and on ,where Marais is torn between a French journalist and a Japanese in a folklore for tourists (complete with puppets,raw fish ,etc),the typhoon ,which anyone is expecting to enliven things a bit,was perhaps impressive at the time,but we've seen much better since and it's all terribly quaint for today's audience.Like America at the same time (Sayonara,Tea house of the August moon),France tried its hand at the Japanese stuff and its effort was appalling.
