SYNOPSIS

1941. Since the Japanese occupation, China has become a wartime intelligence battlefield for the Allies and the Axis Powers. Celebrated actress Jean Yu makes an abrupt return from Hong Kong under the pretence of starring in a play, directed by her former lover.

collapse

As tensions between Allied Forces and Axis Powers residing in the city intensify, rumours circulate about the possible motives for her return; to free her ex-husband, to rekindle a past romance, or to work as an undercover spy for her adoptive French father. As friends, colleagues, and admirers circle her, Jean is unsure of who to trust.

Evocatively captured in sweeping black and white photography, and suspenseful right until its final moments, Gong Li oozes pure charisma in a take-no- prisoners performance in its titular role.
