Man torn between love and career in post war Japan
This film looks as if it could have come from a more interesting book or play. A Russian photographer is trapped in post-war Tokyo and embittered both by Japan's role in the horrors of the recent war and by its close knit society and the limitations it places on his career. He seeks US citizenship and the professional freedom he perceives that it offers. He becomes torn between an American woman with very idiosyncratic social circumstances but who can offer him transit to the US and a comparatively westernised upper class Japanese girl. The portrayal of the sleazier side of Tokyo life, and especially expatriate life, of the time is interesting and probably representative. For the time it was made this is a particularly "adult" film. Worth a look.
