A Girl Named Tamiko is the story of a half-Chinese, half-Russian photographer, Ivan Kalin (Laurence Harvey), living in post-World War II Japan. Ivan's parents were killed in the war and his professional career is limited by the structure of the hierarchical Japanese society. He has been seeking a way out of Japan for a decade in order to find the professional freedom that he desperately seeks. Ivan has been unable to obtain a visa, but when he meets a woman, Fay Wilson (Martha Hyer), who works at the U.S. Embassy, he thinks his struggle is finally over. As fate would have it, Ivan meets another woman, Tamiko (France Nuyen), who is from a traditional Japanese family. Now, Ivan is torn between Fay and Tamiko. Fay offers Ivan what he has been seeking all these years, but he is enchanted with Tamiko. A Girl Named Tamiko juxtaposes the ideas of modernity and freedom against the roles of tradition and culture when Ivan must decide between a blonde American embassy worker and a traditional Japanese woman.moreless
