When it comes to good spy movies, there are more than i can count. The genre is big and people love it. Saturday Fiction is a very special type of movie in this genre. I was lucky enough to see this movie at the very first screening at the Venice Filmfestival. Critics didn't like the movie, but i loved it.
The movie tells the story of a young actress, who is working for the Allies to collect informations about the Japanese. When she is coming to 1941-Shanghai, she has a special mission...
I don't want to give away to much plot at this point, because the story is beautiful narrated and is the most enjoyable by watching it yourself.
The movie has beautiful and artistic cinematography and is far far away from the mainstream spy genre. You have multiple characters, which are well developed (at least the main characters) and the story is tricky and feeds with nice little twist. The acting(especially Gong Li) is phenomenal and the music fits perfectly.
For me it is one of the most perfectly balanced movies i have ever seen. It is never trying to be super creativ or super artistic. It stays true to himself, tells a interesting story in a perfect way and it will suck you into the story and blows your mind with the third Act, in which all the tension building up going to be set free in one of the most thrilling movie finals i have ever seen.
A must-see for fans of asian movies and arthouse movies.
