A film called Treason

Saw Lust, Caution by Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Brokeback Mountain) at “the Ross” on the University of Nebraska – Lincoln’s city campus. With no comment on the raciness, it’s the best film on love of other v. love of others v. love of country I can recall.

The central plot, involving a KMT (insurgent cell) plot to kill a “KMT” (Peace Faction / Japanese Collaborator) minister is perfectly executed.

Plus, any film with Tony Leung Chiu Wai (Days of Being Wild; 2046) and Joan Chen (The Last Emperor; Twin Peaks)? Bull’s eye!
