Adapted from a novella with the same title by Eileen Chang, Ann Hui sets the film in Shanghai and Hong Kong during the Sino-Japanese war. Chow Yun-Fatt stars as Fan Liu-yuan, a charming
Malayan businessman who falls in love with Ba Liusu, a scorned divorcee played by Cora Miao. The city’s fall to the Japanese interrupts the lovers’ lives in unexpected ways. Love in a Fallen City is a complex Hong Kong New Wave film that examines traditional notions of Chinese identity and cosmopolitan modernity amidst the upheaval of war.
