Shanghai, Shanghai (上海, 上海)

Chow Yuen Fatt

Gong Li

Ken Watanabe


All my favorite Chinese actors and the incredibly cute John Cusack from “Serendipity” and I wonder why I have not watched this movie!


According to Wikipedia, this movie is set around the bombing of Pearl Harbor and involves a Nazi spy, a Japanese girl and a scheming Chinese couple i.e. Chow Yuen Fatt and Gong Li. Sounds exciting doesn’t it?


Although I am not familiar with the plot, I feel that I have seen this movie because I recall a sultry songstress crooning out the words, “Shanghai, Shanghai” using one of the old-fashioned microphones…

Oh,well,if I can find the DVD I would definitely watch it again especially as I am into Chinese culture and history now.
