director:
Jin-ho Hur
cast:
Cecilia Cheung, Dong-gun Jang, Ziyi Zhang

Ex-lovers’ loaded repartee has serious consequences when an ingenue gets pulled into their game of high-stakes cat-and-mouse. Set in 1930s Shanghai, this reworking of the classic French story of passion, jealousy, and deception is deliciously ripe with period costumes and rich performances of some of the most attractive lying you’ve ever seen. “Schadenfreude carries a delectable tang no matter the language, and as the history of Hollywood shows, stories about pretty people behaving badly remain reliably alluring.” (NY Times) In Mandarin.
