Plot & Details
A woman discovers some long lost treasure without realizing the danger involved in selling it in this polished, visually striking thriller from the writing and directing team of Julien Carbon and Laurent Courtland. Carrie (Carrie Ng) is a beautiful, mysterious woman living in Hong Kong who has exotic tastes in both pleasure and pain. Carrie is fascinated with the story of the royal executioner to the First Emperor of China, who was said to have developed a special potion that would heighten the senses of his victims while robbing them of their ability to move. Carrie wants to find some of the executioner's special compound, which is believed to be hidden in an ancient white jade objet d'art. As it happens, French sophisticate Catherine (Frédérique Bel) has found the trinket that Carrie is looking for, and she travels to Hong Kong in hopes of selling it. When Carrie learns that Catherine has what she wants, she'll stop at nothing to get it, and the fact Catherine is a beautiful woman makes the game of cat and mouse all the more pleasing for her. Les Nuits Rouges du Bourreau de Jade (aka Red Nights) received its North American premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.
