<p>A major motion picture (2007) from Oscar-winning director Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Brokeback Mountain): an intensely passionate story of love and espionage, set in Shanghai during World War II.<br><br>In the midst of the Japanese occupation of China and Hong Kong, two lives become intertwined: Wong Chia Chi, a young student active in the resistance, and Mr. Yee, a powerful political figure who works for the Japanese occupational government. As these two move deftly between Shanghai&rsquo;s tea parties and secret interrogations, they become embroiled in the complicated politics of wartime&mdash;and in a mutual attraction that may be more than what they expected. Written in lush, lavish prose, and with the tension of a political thriller,&#160;Lust, Caution&#160;brings 1940s Shanghai artfully to life even as it limns the erotic pulse of a doomed love affair.</p>
