Sumptuous Merchant-Ivory production set in Shanghai. A different kind of love story set in a time of tumult. Ralph fineness does an excellent job as the tortured lead. If you like histrionic
Roy and romance, you'll enjoy this film.

This is a great movie. I can't believe it has only a three star rating.
The review shown alongside the other info are pretty good, but it still rates more respect.

Weather you love travel, history, costumes, glimpsing other cultures, or real drama, this movie rewards the viewer. It is film making as it should be. It is definitely worth watching more than once.
