This Franco-Japanese production made the American TV rounds as Typhoon Over Nagasaki. Jean Marais heads the cast as Pierre, a French engineer working in the titular Japanese metropolis. Ignoring social and racial conventions, Pierre falls in love with local girl Noriko (Kishi Keiko). The fly in the ointment is Pierre's ex-flame Francoise (Danielle Darrieux), who launches an aggressive campaign to win him back. The plot is resolved by a climactic typhoon (surprise!), forcing the engineer to make a fateful--and not altogether emotionally satisfying--decision.
