Laurence Harvey plays a Eurasian photographer who is trapped in Japan, but who wants to emigrate to the United States. His visa is continually delayed, which causes him to use his charm with women to pull some strings and apply some pressure on the embassy. His romantic magnetism works on a thrill-seeking American and an aristocratic Japanese woman.Written by

Well, you've got to start somewhere.
At the top! I'm not a kid anymore. And America's the place to do it in. There's only one thing I need.
I can let you have a little money.
Thanks. But I can get money if I can get a reputation. And that's what I have to leave with, if I expect to be anything in America.
There's a desperation about all this. It isn't like you.
You're an Englishman. Sapporo's Japanese. I have no country. I've nothing.

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.
