This Japanese-German coproduction is a plodding depiction of traditional Japanese culture being threatened by Western values. Kosugi plays a young man back from extensive travels in Europe, where he has met a woman he intends to marry. This causes a conflict with his foster father,

Hayakawa, who reminds Kosugi of his father's wishes that he wed Hara. The young man eventually calls off his marriage to Eveler, who gracefully bows out, and goes through with his marriage to Hara. The picture is filled with beautiful photography of the Japanese landscape, which, though quite nice

to look at, does nothing to help move the story along. Film versions in Japanese and English.
