Published in the mid-19th century, Emily Brontë's tale of profound passion, thwarted love and bitter vengefulness has seen multiple translations published over the past 100 years.  Named after the Chinese title of the 1945 translated version, this Chinese film adaptation successfully transposes the Victorian England setting to turn of the century in China.  Cheung Ying stars as the mistreated stepson who is slowly driven to take vengeance against his foster family, with Mui Yee co-starring as the stepsister that he can’t love. Director Tso Kea concentrates on the lead characters' simmering mental troubles, taking a delicate and intricate approach to the flawed characters and the provocative love story at its core.
