Here's another movie I'm really looking forward to this fall, directed by one of my favourite directors Ang Lee. Lust, Caution is based on a story by Eileen Chang, whose Love in a Fallen City was recently published by New York Review of Books. It's a marvellously haunting collection of short stories about women's lives, loves and desperation in Hong Kong during the interwar years and would be a perfect preamblatory read in preparation for this movie (the story and the screenplay will also be published this fall) which is set during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and Shanghai. You can see the trailer here. The cinematography alone looks lush and incredibly beautiful, not to mention the cheongsams.
