Undiscovered Classic
23 August 2006 | by JillianMooSee all my reviews

This film is an undiscovered classic.

the late great terence donovaan, one of the best and the most talented fashion photographers in the past 30 years directed this strange little film, about a Japanese cop in London.

Donovan was the director of the now famous and iconic robert palmer 'addicted to love' pop promo, which has become iconic in its imagery and has been copied and parodied a countless times.

The film is an oddity as fish out of water film were not really the fashion in the 1970's but its a very good precursor of what was to come in the form of all the cop fish out of water films of the 1980's, best exemplified by Eddie Murphy's Beverley hills cop movies.

I am dying to get this film but cannot find it anywhere.
