When Paul Robaix (Yves Montand) plays rock-paper-scissors with a geisha, who unbeknownst to him is his wife Lucy Dell (Shirley MacLaine), a side camera view shows Montand taking his cigarette out of his mouth and putting it down before he plays the game. When he wins, the camera angle switches to MacLaine's point of view and shows Montand with the cigarette still in his mouth. See more »
Although I only saw this movie once over ten years ago on late night TV,I was struck by the beautiful scenery and the storyline somehow reminded me of James Mason & Judy Garland "A star is born".Shirley Mclaine is a favorite of mine and she managed to imbue the Japanese persona so purely and one could feel Yves Montand frustration and eagerness to achieve success without his wife.I cannot recall much more of this film but I do know that my best friend Maruschka has watched it so many times that her tape copy is wearing out.It is a classic love story. Very hard to find a copy for it and I would love to see it out on DVD.I would then surprise my friend by buying her a copy (and one for me also).Millie
