Lust, Caution


Director Ang Lee (Sense and Sensibility and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) has a new film opening this weekend. Winner of Best Picture at the Venice Film Festival, Lust, Caution is an espionage story set in 1940's Shanghai, and curiously rated NC-17.

Click here to view the (PG) trailer.

Update: I loved the music so much from the trailer, I decided to investigate further. The Lust, Caution is composed by Alexandre Desplat, who also did the original score for The Painted Veil.

I can't wait to live somewhere permanently so I can sign up for a Netflicks-like service and add this to the list.

I am a sucker for movies about this era. I am also loving the music in this trailer. I will have to find out if it was composed specifically for the movie.

It looks so beautiful - the cinematography!! I love it. Last year my daughter's favorite dvd was Memoirs of a Geisha. We watched it probably 20 times!!! I love movies about Chinese and Japanese cultures, they have such beautiful design sensibilities.
