Storyline

Stretching across the canvas of the Sino-Japanese War of the 30s, the subsequent Japanese surrender in 1945, and the onslaught of Communism, this film depicts an ill-fated romance between a talented lady novelist and a Chinese traitor working with the Japanese who fall victim to the mayhem of war and their tragic inability to reconcile political differences. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

See for Brigitte lin's excellent performance
26 August 2020 | by yadavanita-18093See all my reviews

The film at whole is very predictable but brigitte lin's performance, her charm and grace makes it at least a one time watch for any fan. The directing and cinematography is good but the soundtrack seems mediocre which could have easily increased the beauty of this film. Maggie cheung also has a prominent role and plays her part beautifully as always. The chemistry and screen presence of both the female leads makes this movie worthwhile to watch.
