Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 10, 2007

Taiwanese director Ang Lee’s erotic spy thriller “Lust, Caution” swept the top honours at the Golden Horse Film Awards, seen as the Chinese-language Oscars.

“Lust, Caution,” took home seven awards, including the coveted best film, best director, and best actor accolades.

Lee was also recognised as the outstanding Taiwanese filmmaker of the year at the 44th edition of the awards in a glittering ceremony in the Taipei Arena.

“I am really moved by the audience’s overwhelming support (of the film) in Taiwan and in Asia. I feel like I am sharing a joint effort with them,” Lee said.

The film, called “Se, Jie” in Chinese, also bagged best make-up and costume design, best original film score, best screenplay adaptation for Lee’s long-time filmmaking partner James Schamus and best new performer for Chinese actress Tang Wei. (story)
