The painted veil

We saw this beautiful 2006 movie (directed by John Curran) earlier this week. The poster, gorgeous as it is, is deceptively romantic - there is a lot more to the story, based on a Somerset Maugham novel. The settings in Guangxi (Guilin - we have been there) are stunning and Naomi Watts is simply magnificent in the lead role.
