Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated SHANGHAI TRIAD is a thrilling and sumptuously stylized potboiler about the Chinese criminal underworld of the 1930’s from legendary director Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, House of Flying Daggers).
Teenager Shuisheng leaves the countryside for Shanghai to work for Triad boss Tang. Enamored by the riches and opulence of this underground world, Shuisheng is assigned to look after the boss’s mistress Xiao Jinbao, a kept woman, who is both an influential queen of the opium dens and a country girl fearing for her life. Over the course of seven days, Shuisheng observes mounting tensions as Tang begins to suspect traitors amongst his ranks and rivals for Xiao Jinbao’s affections. Zhang’s inventive take on the gangster film is “assured and attention-grabbing” (Variety) and Gong’s central performance, “a portrait of a capricious and indulgent woman who gains depth as we watch her – is one of her finest” (Chicago Tribune).
