Movie Info

A Chinese adaptation of the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses begins with aging socialite Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung) who finds herself circling ex-boyfriend Xie Yifan (Jang Dong-kun). Mo, the rich and charming widow with a taste for pleasures, still has eyes for famous womanizer Xie, who secretly burns with love for her. And yet, in his luxurious life, Xie's new interest lies in chaste humanitarian Du Fenyu (Ziyi Zhang), who has captured his attention and earned his desire for conquest. Mo lures Xie into a treacherous, dangerous game of hearts: win, bed, and leave Du, proving his mettle as a rogue and impossible catch. But can Xie take the honor of such a woman, without losing his own heart, as well? (c) Well Go USA

They have made the film function successfully almost as well as in the original setting.

Much of the cynicism, and thus the fun, of its many Western predecessors goes missing.

November 9, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Schadenfreude carries a delectable tang no matter the language, and as the history of Hollywood shows, stories about pretty people behaving badly remain reliably alluring.

Zhang, expertly conveying someone closed off yet silently sensual, even rolls out a tear during a moment of impending intimacy as exquisitely timed as a dancer's move.

November 8, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Takes Pierre Choderlos de Laclos' 18th century source material to its most sumptuous silliness - I mean that as a compliment.

November 8, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

This is a relatively shallow entertainment, but its glossy surfaces certainly are, well, seductive.
