More than just an escapist romantic drama
26 July 2003 | by (Camden, Maine) – See all my reviews

Laurence Harvey is a half-Russian, half-Chinese photographer who has been waiting 12 years to immigrate from Japan to the USA. Embittered by the death of his parents during the Japanese invasion of Shanghai, he is now caught between desire for a US Embassy official (Martha Hyer) & growing love for a high-born Japanese girl (France Nuyen). Much more than an escapist romantic melodrama, it explores issues such as the difference in socio-economic classes & its effect on some people, modernity & freedom vs. tradition & culture. Beautifully filmed in Tokyo, Kyoto & the lake region, this movie will have you booking a flight on the next Japan Airlines flight.

Unfortunately, Paramount Studios has NOT released a wide screen DVD of this little seen & underrated film.
