This review is from: Dangerous Liaisons [Blu-ray] (2012) (Blu-ray)
Being a huge fan of international cinema as well as a film student myself, I watched this film on dvd and was so impressed with it that I ordered the blu-ray right away. Celicia Cheung has always played a silly, sometimes vulnerable character in many of her films. This is her breakout performance into the big time like actresses Gong Li, Ziyi Zhang, Maggie Cheung, Carina Lau, Michelle Yeoh, Lee Sinje and Karena Lam. Yes, she was good in "Running on Karma" co-starring Andy Lau but her performance in "Dangerous Liaisons" was incredible, razor sharp and poignant. She is among my favorite actresses after this performance. If you enjoy films like "In The Mood For Love", "Days of Being Wild", "Farewell My Concubine", "2046", "The Banquet", "The Emperor and the Assassin", "Curse of the Golden Flower", "Temptress Moon", "Shanghai Triad" and "Raise The Red Lantern" then you will also enjoy "Dangerous Liaisons". HIGHTLY RECOMMENDED!!!
