Lust, Caution

Sunday 16th March 5:00 PM


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


“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”
