LUST, CAUTION is a subtitled period drama in Mandarin, set in Japanese occupied China, about a young woman who works with the resistance to help assassinate a top collaborator with the Japanese.

Sex

There are three strong sex scenes which feature considerable detail, including various sexual positions and some crotch detail. In the first scene, it is not made clear whether the woman is consenting to sex or not.

There is also a lengthy scene in which a group of students kill a collaborator. He is repeatedly stabbed with a knife but does not die, and his shirt becomes increasingly bloodstained. He is eventually killed by one of the students who breaks his neck.
