  1. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film Temptress Moon

    As intoxicating as oppressive, this is a glorious sensualist nightmare. Between the ancestral houses drowning in opium smoke and the glitzy vices of Shanghai, Chen evokes a world ripe with temptation where only the heartless are able to survive. However, it’s too long, with a script both over and underwritten. As for the cast, only Cheung and He seem to know how to avoid getting lost in Doyle’s maximalist style.

  2. Kamran's rating of the film Temptress Moon

    Gorgeously realized cinematography with atmospheric visuals comes at odds with inelegantly laid, overwritten, romantic crime drama. 78/100 - Very Good (3.5)

  4. Nikyatu's rating of the film Temptress Moon

    This film is a masterpiece. My only regret is that I didn't discover it sooner. Gong Li can do no wrong.
