A pleasant little film
5 May 2000 | by sharptongueSee all my reviews

The main story, of a British prince running away and, by accident, becoming involved with a lovely and naive Japanese tour guide, is enchanting and lovely. There is a subplot concerning a bunch of loony patriots bent on assassinating the prince. This should have added an element of excitement and tension. Instead, it looks like what it is - a lame add-on to pad the film out to feature length. This subplot adds absolutely nothing to the film, and only properly intersects to story at one point. Pity. But don't let this put you off. This film is a sheer delight for any man who finds Asian women lovely, as well as anyone who is a sucker for romance and the lure of the exotic. Warmly recommended.
