Directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud in 1992 based on the semi-autobiographical 1984 novel by Marguerite Duras, this drama depicts the illicit affair between a teenage French girl and a wealthy Chinese man in 1929 French Indochina.
The film shows the exotic ambience of Indochina of the day with an unexpected sexuality.
Superb are the performances of Tony Leung and Jane March, who appears as a "nymphet beauty" in her film debut.
The main actors and elegant photography provide a soft-core sensuality.
