1884: In a brothel in Shanghai's British area, four women build their lives, shut off from the outside world and surrounded by opium smoke, money and men. Acclaimed for its stunning 7-minute opening shot, sensuous cinematography and sophisticated construction of a microcosmic world, Flowers of Shanghai is based on a well-known 19th century Chinese novel.

"One of the most sublimely beautiful films I've ever seen, and one of the most unbearably sad. To watch these characters break one another's hearts, and then to have your own broken, is to experience something that the movies rarely grant usperfection." Manohla Dargis, LA Weekly
