Oscar-winning director Ang Lee returns to Chinese-language cinema for the first time since his award-winning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Based on a short story by celebrated author Eileen Chang (Eighteen Springs), Lust, Caution is easily one of 2007's biggest events in World Cinema.
1942, Japanese occupied Shanghai. Young drama student Wang Jiazhi (Tang Wei, in a daring debut performance) has been given an extraordinary mission: to infiltrate the inner circle of Mr. Yee (Tony Leung Chiu Wai), the head of the Japanese puppet government's secret police, and arrange for his assassination. To do so, she takes on a false identity as "Mrs. Mak" and attempts to seduce Mr. Yee, convincing him of her emotion so she can one day betray him. At first, Jiazhi is dedicated to her cause, having been drafted into the ranks of the resistance by her charismatic classmate Kuang (Leehom Wang). But in attempting to draw closer to Mr. Yee, she finds herself torn between her "real" life and the seductive pull of the role she has created, a role that threatens to consume her heart and soul.
Premiering at the 2007 Venice Film Festival, the film earned Ang Lee his second Golden Lion Award, the first being for Brokeback Mountain, while also receiving notices for its exacting detail, sumptuous period setting, powerful performances from Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Tang Wei, and finally its explicit love scenes. The film was branded with an NC-17 rating in North America due to nudity and graphic sexual situations, but the material is integral to the film, revealing the characters at perhaps their most emotionally vulnerable and exposed. Also starring Asian-American actress Joan Chen, and featuring an exquisite score from French composer Alexandre Desplat, Lust, Caution is a powerful and uncompromising work from one of the world's most accomplished modern filmmakers.
