Ang Lee has a varied and consistently interesting catalog of films to his credit including The Ice Storm, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain. His new film Lust, Caution is adapted from Eileen Chang's novel and is set during Shanghai during the WWII era.
With Wong Kar Wai stalwart Tony Leung, colourful cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (who also worked with Lee on Brokeback Mountain), Chinese(Mandarin) dialogue, and haunting strings on the soundtrack, this project looks reminiscent of Wong Kar Wai.
In addition to Leung, Joan Chen and newcomer Tang Wei star. The screenplay is by Wang Hui Ling and James Schamus.
