Movie Info

There are no men in the Tang family. The devious Madame Tang (Kara Wai, Mrs K) hard-hearted matriarch and shady syndicate leader, acts as mediator between the rich and the powerful. Tang Ning (Wu Ke-xi, The Road to Mandalay), her rebellious daughter, reluctantly cooperates with her while Tang Chen, the obedient granddaughter, observes everything in silence. Only when a friend of theirs and his whole family has been murdered do they realise that they are in deep trouble. This stylised melodrama, a spectacle of family dysfunction and moral depravity, is highly intensified by the chilling performances of its actresses.

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The film tells an outrageously labyrinthine tale of power, corruption and lies pivoting on a ruthless matriarch and the daughters she is ostensibly gaining all her wealth for.

this sumptuously produced, meticulously plotted and deliciously acted cautionary tale provides a riotous, fun time.

...may be batshit crazy, but it does craziness elegantly

[It] is ultimately more memorable for the chilling performances of its trio of actresses than for its story, which turns into a spectacle of family dysfunction and moral depravity.

Dec 7, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

If the title promises a melodrama, this orgy of betrayal certainly is one; yet deft acting and sheer audacity take it beyond standard melodrama fare.
