Watch: Official US Trailer for Chinese 'Dangerous Liaisons' Remake
Another day, another remake (or a re-adaptation). "I said I truly love you." This one comes from China, a remake of the 1988 movie Dangerous Liaisons, which was an adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos's 1782 French romance novel of the same name (Les Liaisons dangereuses). Starring in this is the stunning Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Horsemen, The Grandmasters) as Madame de Tourvel, with Jang Dong-gun (Tae Guk Gi, The Warrior's Way) as Xie Yifan, also featuring Cecilia Chung, Shawn Dou and Lisa Lu. It actually looks surprisingly tense, and seductive, give this a watch.
Watch the official US release trailer for Jin-ho Hur's Dangerous Liaisons, in high def from Apple:
1930s Shanghai: the glamorous, tumultuous "Paris of the East" whose salons, streets and bedrooms frame this Chinese adaptation of the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Aging socialite Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung) still finds herself circling ex-boyfriend Xie Yifan (Jang Dong-kun). Years after separation, their attraction--and appetites--burn just beneath the surface. And yet, in his luxurious life, Xie's new interest lies in chaste humanitarian Du Fenyu (Ziyi Zhang), who has captured his attention and earned his desire for conquest. This Chinese production of Dangerous Liaisons is directed by Jin-ho Hur (One Fine Spring Day) from a script by Geling Yan. Well Go USA is releasing in limited theaters starting on November 9th.
I didn't like the 1988 Dangerous Liaisons at all. And this doesn't look any better from this trailer. The music is so out of place.

Depends on the adaption. I didn't mind 1999's Cruel Intentions.

EVERYTHING with Zhang Ziyi is tense and seriously seductive - don't be surprised about that ! Maybe surprising that this would be remade in CHINA ? doing everything to be the America of the East I guess ....
