1930s Shanghai: the glamorous, tumultuous “Paris of the East” whose salons, streets and bedrooms frame this Chinese adaptation of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” into a lush, new vision of DANGEROUS LIAISONS, debuting on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital February 12th from Well Go USA Entertainment. Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha, Til Death Do Us Part), Jang Dong-Gun (My Way, Friend) and Cecilia Cheung (Legendary Amazons) embody the classic triangle under the direction of Jin-ho Hur (A Good Rain Knows) in the timeless story about an aging socialite’s infatuation with her ex-boyfriend that manifests itself as a risky game, where her former lover agrees to seduce, then abandon a naive young woman. Bonus materials include two behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Aging socialite Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung) still finds herself circling ex-boyfriend Xie Yifan (Jang Dong-kun). Even after years of separation, their attraction – and appetites – smolder just beneath the surface. Mo, the rich and charming widow with a taste for indulgence and sensuous pleasures, still has eyes for famous womanizer Xie, who secretly burns with love for her. And yet, in his luxurious life, Xie’s new interest lies in chaste humanitarian Du Fenyu (Ziyi Zhang), who has captured his attention and earned his desire for conquest. Mo lures Xie into a
treacherous, dangerous game of hearts: win, bed, and leave Du, proving his mettle as a rogue and impossible catch. But can Xie take the honor of such a woman, without losing his own heart, as well? As war looms in Shanghai, can Xie win Mo’s seductive game? Can he choose between these two women? Where will such a triangle lead them all? In matters of the heart, and in this city, there may be no difference between love and war.
