Inspired documentary about Shanghai between the wars. French language, subtitled in English.
29 November 2009 | by (China) – See all my reviews

A thrilling story of opium, war and gangsters is told with a combination of stunning images, slick editing, and thorough research, including footage never seen before. Those familiar with the city of Shanghai, will experience frequent thrills of recognition, as they see striking and sometimes tragic historical events, on familiar streets. An informative voice-over, combined with readings from Albert Londres, pioneering investigative journalist, provide a fascinating insight, accompanying the images. If you want to know how four senior French police officials died mysteriously from suspected mushroom poisoning after dining with Shanghai's legendary opium godfather, then seek out this film....
