Six decades of Eileen Chang films

New Century Weekly
November 1, 2007

After meeting audiences overseas, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution (the cut version, of course) has arrived mainland China, and author Eileen Chang has once again become the focus of public discourse. The latest New Century Weekly contains a feature on 60 years of Chang-related cinema. Actress Tang Wei, as Lust, Caution's Wang Jiazhi, is on the cover.

Other stories on the cover:

• Mao Yushi, a famous Chinese economist, got involved in a high compensation case. His domestic services company was ordered to pay out more than half a million yuan in compensation to a couple whose child died accidentally while in the care of one of the company's employees.

• Poet Yu Di committed suicide at home in early October. The magazine investigates his death and those of other poets such as Hai Zi and Gu Cheng, and examines how poets lead their lives in a money-first society.

• The marriage rumors of French President Nicolas Sarkozy

• The hot domestic TV series "Struggle" (奋斗), which dramatizes the struggles of the post-80s generation now that they have graduated from collage, is called a "must-see," at least if you're interested in post-80s stuff.
