So before the holidays started my friend E ask me to go watch "Lust,Caution". I have to say this movie is sexually very explicit, but the acting was superb, especially by Tang Wei, the female lead and Tony Leung. I especially enjoyed the costume and the hair styling of the women in this movie. The interior was ok but the way that the women dressed was what I enjoyed the most outside the plot of the movie.

A little bio on the original writer Eileen Chang. by Ripple Effect.

“Lust, Caution” is a short story written by Eileen Chang (Zhang Ailing), a writer born 1920 in Shanghai. Chang attended the University of Hong Kong from 1939 to 1941, majoring in Literature. As the Japanese invasion advanced to Hong Kong, Chang had to cut short her education there and return to the then Japanese occupied Shanghai in 1942, where she began her vigorous writing career. In a few short years she had gained popularity as a novelist, short story writer and essayist. Eileen Chang had been compared to Eudora Welty and Katherine Mansfield, and was considered one of the few eligible contemporary Chinese writers as a candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The women in this movie reminds me of those 1920's Chinese Advertisements. This type of image is used on alot of things, like this from Bunny Max Well called "Liu".
