Many of the films of the '50's era were partly travelogues, and this film is no exception. The opening aerial shots of Hong Kong harbour circa 1955, the streets scenes without extras, village and road scenes on the back of Victoria Island are not just for the Orientalist, but anyone interested in beautiful Cinemascope time-capsules of the past.

The color transfer to digital is acceptably good, with charming little chromatic glips from the joining-tape on the scene cuts. Seen on a good HD system, these restored films are hugely better in quality than any cinema-goer in the 1950's would have had the opportunity to view.

Of course the love-plot is refreshingly restrained, to a point of romanticization that one wonders how closely the script follows the true biographical life of Dr. Han Suyin.

Notwithstanding that the film is about love across a cultural divide, it is laced with some marvelous 'un-PC' ethnic pride, reflected in lines such as "I became a doctor to help my people.... like all Chinese, I am spell-bound by my country".

A really sweet, touching, almost haunting film from the time when movie makers still knew how to tell a story.

This kept me company while I was I'll recently. I remember watching it on TV years ago one Saturday afternoon on BBC2. and developed 'a thing' for William Holden.... I think I was maybe 14 at the time; he had such a wonderful voice.

Some may think it's dated and of course it is having been made decades ago based on a book written, what, 50years ago? Think of it as a romantic journey into a bit of social history and an examination of attitudes regarding class and race that one would hope have changed (except that in reality, and sadly, they haven't changed that much, have they?). This is a classic and classy romance and the music is wonderful.

Next time you are feeling poorly and in need of a duvet day, pop this in the DVD player. You could double bill it with 'An Affair to Remember' !

It bought back memories of Hong Kong from long ago and all the taboos of love between the Chinese and Europeans at that time. A great movie

Emotional romance set during the Korean war. A tale of conflict of emotions and love involving varying cultures, pride and devotion to duty.

Just had a week in Hong Kong and wanted the dvd to compare sights seen and what they were in 1955! An old and soppy love story that brings a tear to the eye at the end!!
