Movie Info

Chen Kaige, the director of the international smash Farewell My Concubine, reunited that film's stars, Gong Li and Leslie Cheung, for this complexly layered, visually spectacular historical epic. Opening in 1911, shortly before the collapse of the Imperial government, Temptress Moon follows the wealthy and powerful Pang Family, whose patriarch is hopelessly addicted to opium, which he calls "the source of all inspiration." Zhengda (Zhou Yemang), Old Master Pang's oldest son, has married a woman

Audience Reviews for Temptress Moon

Out of all the movies I have seen from the Far East this was one of the hardest to keep up with, took about 50 minutes to get straight who was who and who was doing what.
Movie is set back in 1911 time frame, and when the master dies his son is in no condition to rule the family (A bad day with Opium ruin his mental facilities.) So wit no choice but to allow Ruyi (Li Gong)the daughter to rule the family, her first action is to throw the whores and concubines out of the house, this really pisses off the elders. As time goes on she falls in love with her brother in law who is a sleaze bucket from Shanghi. In the eng Ruyi falls victim to the same fate as her brother. Not as good as other Asian films I have seen but worth 3 1/2 stars.
