A dark, sensual, and visually sumptuous drama, Ju Dou centres on the title character (Gong Li), the wife of a wealthy silk dyer in 1920s China. Forced into marriage, Ju Dou is repeatedly mistreated and tortured by her husband for failing to bear him an heir, even though he is infertile. Her suffering attracts the sympathy of her husband's younger, kinder nephew, and the two begin a secret affair that could lead to tragic consequences.

Filmed in glowing Technicolor, this tale of romantic and familial love in the face of unbearable tradition is universal no matter where the setting.
