About the Movie
In 1930's Shanghai, the "Paris of the East," aging socialite Mo (Cecilia Cheung) and famous womanizer Xie (Jang Dong-gun) indulge cynical but sensuous pleasures in a dangerous game of hearts. The game: win, bed, and abandon kind humanitarian widow Du (Zhang Ziyi). The prize: a chance to rekindle lost romance. But in a city where no one can be trusted, there may be no difference between love and war.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: An interesting twist on a classic plot, Dangerous Liaisons is essentially a deluxe soap opera. But with its beautiful cast and gorgeous production design, it is still a highly enjoyable way to waste two hours.
Rotten: The least one should hope for from another adaptation of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos's Dangerous Liaisons is savory, salacious trash ...
Just ok..i guess..
Outstanding performance - Korean actor: Jang Dong Gun
Very good movie if you understand the culture reference.
