25th Apr 07'
The searing heat and choking humidity of '20s Shanghai provide a suitably steamy and exotic backdrop to John Curran's stirring tale of repressed emotions, adapted by Ron Nyswaner from W. Somerset Maugham's novel. Falling in love is a perilous business in The Painted Veil: young hearts are crushed by the conventions and mores of the time.
