Maybe for someone with the attention span of a gnat.
Nice movie. Great portrayal by Alec Guinness. He somehow manages to overcome the impediment of a botox like makeup job to produce a completely convincing Japanese business man. Everything from the way he managed to sit in seiza (position of kneeling) in a relaxed manner to the way he spoke Japanese was convincing. He spoke Japanese with a better Japanese accent than he spoke English with a Japanese accent. The man was a freak. I was expecting something like the gibberish dialog of Kill Bill, but this movie got it right. Nice job done by Rosalind Russell too. Don't know her work, but I will keep my eye out.
Felt compelled to defend this sweet movie.
