<i>Over the Threshold</i> is a documentary film about intermarriage between Westerners and Japanese. The directors are a husband-and-wife team who met during their course of study at Britain's National Film & TV School. The film documents their first visit to Japan together, a visit during which husband Tezuka introduces his Caucasian wife to his family. The point of view is largely that of the "outsider," and much of the film amounts to a sociocultural study of a Japanese family, who seem to adapt surprisingly well to having a foreigner in their midst. The film's perspective is strengthened by the incorporation of interviews with other Western women who have married Japanese husbands.
