Storyline

Teenager Tamahine grew up in the South Pacific the only legitimate child - she with many illegitimate siblings, which is typical of the only culture she knows as marriage is considered forever - of her British father Julian, with her Polynesian mother passing away when she was a child. After Julian passes away, Tamahine, as was her father's wishes, travels to Britain to learn of that side of her family and their proper British customs. She is to be the ward of Julian's widowed cousin, Charles Poole, the headmaster of Hallow, a proper upper class boys' school, he who has two offspring living with him: his twenty-something unhappy and soon to be divorced daughter, Diana, who is secretly, or not so secretly, dating the school's indecisive art teacher, Tim Clove; and his eighteen year old son, Richard Poole, a student at the school. Tamahine is blissfully unaware that her frank talk, especially about what she calls "loving", and her various states of undress are causing an uproar at the ... Written by Huggo

Nancy Kwan shows lots of skin - that's all you need to know
7 January 2004 | by (Southern CA) – See all my reviews

No, Nancy isn't nude (well, you see her backside briefly when she's about to pose nude for the artist), but Nancy Kwan is even sexier in just her plain outfits. To be honest, she looks cuter in her island outfits more than her "European" modern stuff. This is Nancy still in the era of cuteness (also watch Lt. Robin Crusoe, Flower Drum Song, and Suzie Wong for vintage Nancy - as well as Honeymoon Hotel)...but in Tamahine, you just want to throw off all her clothes...not a great film, but a great Nancy kwan physical beauty showcase.
