SYNOPSIS

Ge Weilong, a young girl from Shanghai, travels to Hong Kong in pursuit of her education. In order to pay for her studies, she asks her aunt, Mrs. Liang, for help. Mrs. Liang is leading a shady life, and Weilong gradually becomes her aunt’s puppet in the game of luring the rich and powerful men. As it happens, Weilong gets genuinely attracted to playboy George Qiao, whose aim is to marry a wealthy girl to maintain his own high-end class lifestyle.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

The film is an adaptation of Eileen Chang (Zhang Ailing)’s first published short story. I love this novel because it’s a brutal story about a mixed-up, hypocritical milieu in Hong Kong shortly before the Second World War. Here, the tropical and primal world is dressed in eclectic fineries and the most melodramatic emotions and relationships are expressed matter-of-factly, as if they were ordinary. I wanted to express this unique set-up, rather than filming another fancy love story.
