LUST, CAUTION

lustcaution_poster 2007 (Se, jie  色,戒) – Ang Lee                                                                                                

“The Trap is Set.”

 

synopsis:

WWII Japanese-occupied Shanghai:  a naive young woman, Wang Jiazhi, gets swept up  in an assassination plot against a powerful and enigmatic political figure, Mr. Yee.   Gaining intimate access to her dangerous prey, she must struggle with her own identity in order to pull off the performance of a lifetime.

cam_03 Within the framework of an erotic espionage thriller – whose plot suggests Alfred Hitchock’s Notorious – Ang Lee constructs a complex and oblique love story that explores the nature of identity, sacrifice and obsession.                                                                         Beautifully nuanced both visually and psychologically, this is a film of deceptive subtlety that springs shut in its final moments like a steel trap.
