A nightclub singer is caught up in a power struggle of mobsters in 1930s Shanghai. Shanghai Triad may seem to be a pure genre film that is all about gang wars, but it is much more than that. Beyond the visial brilliance and the style, beyond the classical foundations of the plot, Zhang Yimou succeeds in exploring the attitude towards women in Chinese tradition through the story of the club singer, who more than a "femme fatale" is a victim of a centuries-old social concept system
