description

Shanghai, 1930. Mr. Tang (Li Baotian), the godfather chief of the underground triad, is the city's overlord. He controls the opium and prostitution trade and owns the most beautiful prostitute-singer in Shanghai, Xiao Jinbao (Gong Li) as his mistress. Fourteen-year-old boy Tang Shui Sheng (Wang Xiao Xiao) was brought by his uncle into the Tang Brotherhood. His job is to watch on Xiao Jinbao. Ultimately, Shui Sheng becomes the only person to whom Xian Jinbao can talk openly and whose relationship with her is not motivated by power or greed.

The group's number two man, Song (Shun Chun), tries to take control of the gang, the city, and Xiao Jinbao. In secret, Xiao Jinbao becomes his mistress. Song set a trip for Mr. Tang and the latter escapes to an island with Xiao Jinbao and Shui Sheng. On the island, Xiao Jinbao makes friend with a widow and her daughter. The once Queen on stage now finds pure happiness by singing a nursery rhyme with the little girl and Shui Sheng - the happiness long lost and too fragile to last, under the shadow of power struggle.

Gritty and Fascinating
Directed by Zhang Yimou of recent epic martial arts flick fame (Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Curse of the Golden flower), this film really goes back to basics with its dramatic exposé of a gang in Shanghai in the 1930s.

Gong Li is probably THE reason why you'd want to catch this film. She's just amazing as usual. Also, you'll get the nursery tune 'Yao, yao, yao dao wai po qiao' stuck in your head after watching this.
