Adjust font size:

Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's latest work, Lust, Caution, has been slated for worldwide release on 28 September.
Director Ang Lee is now working on post-production editing, which is expected to be finished by the middle of August, the Shanghai Youth Daily reported on Tuesday.
As a movie adaptation of famed Chinese author Eileen Chang's novel, the film tells of what happened in Shanghai during World War II, and is said to be loosely based on actual events.

A young girl, played by actress Tang Wei, is assigned to seduce a high-ranking intelligence officer, working for the Japanese-controlled puppet government, before leading him into an assassination trap. She later realizes she is in love with the officer, played by Hong Kong actor Tony Leung. The unexpected love affair generates more turmoil.

James Schamus from investor group Focus Features, remarks that the story is "very Asia", and he is confident that Ang Lee can make it a worldwide success.
