Of all Ang Lee's amazing films, this is my favorite. Richly nuanced story about a young Chinese university student who becomes a secret agent for the Chinese resistance fighters during the Japanese occupation of China in the 1940's. Torn between love and loyalty, leading a double life, she finds herself deep in a game of intrigue that has no winning hand, a theme highlighted by Lee's symbolic use of the tile game Majhong in key scenes interspered throughout the film.
Note that the original cut of the film has 3 very graphic and somewhat violent sex scenes (NC-17), so it is not appropriate for young audiences.
Winner of 3 Oscars; in Chinese with English subs. 10/10
