synopsis

Rouge stars Leslie Cheung (Farewell My Concubine) as Chan, the never-do-well son of a wealthy and powerful family, who defiantly falls head over heels in love with prostitute Fleur (Anita Mui) in the 1930's. Disowned and despised, the hopeless couple makes a suicide pact - but Chan finds himself unable to carry through with it.

Fleur's pining spirit returns to the thriving Hong Kong 50 years later and finds Chan a withered has-been old-timer, suffering the humiliation of a parasitic and destitute existence. With time running out, Fleur faces her last chance to test Chan's devotion.

Passionate, moving, and exquisitely executed, Rouge is a must for all those who live for cinematic excellence.
