A film filled with great beauty and danger, Lust, Caution might end up as the definitive film on pre-Revolution Shanghai, its decadence and brutality, its glamour and hidden debauchery. Radiant, humble young Wang has fled for Hongkong during the Second World War. She joins a patriotic theatre troupe at her university, and they quickly become a tightly knit group of friends and comrades. Wang's wrenching performances rally supporters to the cause, but the troupe soon tires of confining their activism to the stage. They plan a perilously bold act of resistance that will change their lives forever: Through an acquaintance, the novice freedom fighters plot to infiltrate the social lives of Mr. Yee and his mah-jong-playing wife by casting Wang as a bourgeois merchant's wife. Yee is a rising star in the collaborationist government, and the virginal Wang will become his mistress so that the gang can assassinate him. (Noah Cowan)
