Lust, Caution!


Okok.... Just found out from a local newspaper that an original full uncut version of the movie will be released here in Singapore. This version will only be shown after the edited version has ended, which is currently still running in the cinema. According to the news, the edited version will end its running by this 25th of October. That's mean most probably the uncut version will be released the week after or during the mid of November.

I believe after hearing this news, most of the audiences will definitely wait for the full version to be release instead of going to watch the movie now. I know I will or should I say we will definitely going to watch the uncut version. Well, most of the people will only be interested on the sex scene instead of the story but not me. I'm only interested on the story line, directing, acting & most importantly it's an Ang Lee's movie. Ahhhhh....... Who am I kidding?

Part of the reason of me wanting to watch this movie in the cinema to be honest is of course the sex scene. Hehehehe...... Ang Lee will be very mad after reading this. Actually the story line, directing & acting also play part of the reason that interest me to the movie, but the sex scene is sort of the trigerring button that pursue me into watching it. Otherwise I will just wait for the DVD to be released.

I've copy & paste the whole synopsis of the movie provided by Yahoo Movies just in case any of you out there are interested in spending some of your time reading about the story. Here goes.........

Shanghai, 1942. The World War II Japanese occupation of this Chinese city continues in force. Mrs. Mak, a woman of sophistication and means, walks into a cafe, places a call, and then sits and waits. She remembers how her story began several years earlier, in 1938 China. She is not in fact Mrs. Mak, but shy Wong Chia Chi. With WWII underway, Wong has been left behind by her father, who has escaped to England. As a freshman at university, she meets fellow student Kuang Yu Min. Kuang has started a drama society to shore up patriotism. As the theater troupe's new leading lady, Wong realizes that she has found her calling, able to move and inspire audiences--and Kuang. He convenes a core group of students to carry out a radical and ambitious plan to assassinate a top Japanese collaborator, Mr. Yee. Each student has a part to play; Wong will be Mrs. Mak, who will gain Yee's trust by befriending his wife and then draw the man into an affair. Wong transforms herself utterly inside and out, and the scenario proceeds as scripted--until an unexpectedly fatal twist spurs her to flee. Shanghai, 1941. With no end in sight for the occupation, Wong--having emigrated from Hong Kong--goes through the motions of her existence. Much to her surprise, Kuang re-enters her life. Now part of the organized resistance, he enlists her to again become Mrs. Mak in a revival of the plot to kill Yee, who as head of the collaborationist secret service has become even more a key part of the puppet government. As Wong reprises her earlier role, and is drawn ever closer to her dangerous prey, she finds her very identity being pushed to the limit...
