Promoted as the nation’s biggest film of the year, the Chinese drama film, Dangerous Liaisons <危险关系> features Zhang Ziyi (章子怡), Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝), and Korean actor Jang Dong Gun (張東健).
Based on the French novel of the same name by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, Dangerous Liaisons is the fifth motion picture adaptation of the novel, behind Hollywood’s 1998 version, France’s Valmont in 1989, Roger Kumble’s Cruel Intentions in 1999, and South Korea’s Untold Scandal in 2003.
The film takes place in 1930s Shanghai and centers around the innocent Du Fenyu (Zhang Ziyi), the widower of a famous and respected college professor. Socialite Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung) convinces her ex-lover Xie Yifan (Jang Dong Gun) to play a treacherous game: if he wants to have sex with her, he will have to seduce the virtuous Du and spoil her reputation. Xie agrees.
The $200 million RMB production is a co-production between China and Korea, and is directed by Korean director Hur Jin Ho (許秦豪). The screenplay is written by famous writer and novelist Yan Geling (严歌苓), who also wrote The Flowers of War <金陵十三钗>. Dangerous Liaisons will be released in cinemas on September 27, 2012.
