Not good; DAMN GOOD!! Just like the English version, Fan was a bastard and Madame Mo a BIATCH! The storyline was pretty much identical to all versions of the story that I'd seen. This was well filmed and masterfully acted from beginning to end. I was totally entranced! Jang Dong Gun as Fan was amazingly good. The cinematography and costuming was wonderful.This was well acted; filmed, and a must-see. I'm not going read more to say anything else but you have to see this.

This movie was really spectacular. It revolved around the plot, it didn't stray too far off, and the cinematography was simply breath-taking. I didn't know that this was an adaptation to a novel (and there's another film for this novel), but I really, really love the acting, the cast, the music, everything. It's a pretty cliche kind of plot, but the ending isn't, in my opinion. If you haven't watched the other read more film or read the novel, I'd recommend you to give this movie a try! I was literally at the edge of my seat as Yi Fan was trying to seduce Fen Yu. It was sort of cute and really sweet at how he was trying to make her like him. Zhang Zi Yi and Jang Dong Gun were so great at their roles!
I think there are some lessons for guys that are taught in this movie. Don't make a woman your enemy. Don't play with more than you can handle. Definitely a must watch. It's thrilling, sensual, and I already re-watched it three times! I don't want to give too many details away. If anything, watch the trailer and get lured in!

    My favorite adaptation. The performance of Dou Shawn, playing the art teacher, comes into focus since I saw him playing Yan Xun in Princess Agents! He was still a hidden gem in this. lol

      what did you liked about this version? I enjoy the concept of bringing the story to 1930s Shanghai and the movie was very well-made (visually stunning), but as an adaptation it's probably my last favourite. I was never sold on Du Fenyu, and she's always the hardest puzzle to pull, either making everything believable or not.

      I loved her character even though she does not get as much screen time as the other leads. The actress pulled off the innocence and compassionate role. The chemistry bet there and YuFan is thick! I agree wholeheartedly with NeDranaAddict's review. Also, best performance was Cecelia Cheung's because she was thoroughly believable as a b%#^%h!
