This erotically charged epic from Oscar-winning director Ang Lee is a brilliant look at how the best-laid plans of freedom fighters during wartime can backfire, especially when sex with the enemy is a fundamental part of their deadly scheme.

Adapted from Eileen Chang's short story by Lee's Crouching Tiger screenwriter Wang Hui-Ling, Lust, Caution follows a powerful political figure (Tony Leung) in World War II-era, Japanese-occupied Shanghai who enters into a dangerous game of emotional intrigue with a young woman (Tang Wei).

The film has the look of some of the war-era films from the 1950s but with the sumptuous cinematography that characterises Lee's previous works.

Winner of The Golden Lion Award, Venice 2007


open_quote The actors deserve the highest praise... Lee is a true master, and his highly suspenseful Lust, Caution casts a spell you won't want to break close_quote Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
