I am showing my crave for Lust and Caution! Oh oh oh, don’t get me wrong, I mean…the movie Lust Caution!
First of all, it is from Lee Ang, the same director who directed the movie “Brokeback Mountain” and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”.
Secondly, the plot is based on Eileen Chang‘s (Zhang Ai Ling) famous novel of the same name.
Thirdly, this movie is partially filmed in Ipoh, Malaysia.
Fourthly, the leading actress, Tang Wei is gorgeous!
Fifthly, and most importantly…the nudity scenes of Tang Wei and Tony Leung are widely discussed in the press.
Ok, please ignore point number 1 to 4 and take point number 5 as the whole. (Blushing)
For those who haven’t watched this movie yet, please take note that this movie will be shown in cinema within these few days, but before that, it’s good to have a preview on the trailer before you enter the cinema for the show. This preview will also make you understand how IMPORTANT it is, for not taking your young little children into this theater.
Oh yeah, perhaps a little trivia about the story. I am not gonna let you know the story, but it’s meaningful to let you know a key person that is portrayed in this movie, who really existed in real life.
On the 21st December of 1939, Zheng Ping Ru requested Ding Mo Cun to accompany her for a shopping session. Ding noticed two fishy men outside the window while Zheng was busy picking the clothes. Ding ran out of the store when he realized something was wrong with the situation. By the time these two men (who were actually the secret agents) tried to gun him down, Ding had already safely took cover in his bullet-proof car.
Lust Caution is a film based on this event. It was all about this young lady secret agent called Zheng trying to assassinate Ding, who was recognized as a traitor against Chinese government at that time.
Zheng was prosecuted in the end, due to a betrayal by someone from the same organization when this assassination took place.
Anyway, the younger sister of Zheng stood out and clarify that there is nothing between her sister Zheng Ping Ru and Ding like what the movie said. Maybe it’s just some modification on the storyline in order to make this movie more interesting.
It’s up to you on whose words to take.
Oh yeah, I forgot something, I would like add another point besides the five points above, regarding “The Reason why I wanted to see Lust Caution”
The music is beautiful…you can listen to it in the trailer. I am quite sure that I will hunt for its OST after seeing this movie!
