The White Countess 2005 138 PG-13 2.5 out of 5 ducks
1930s Shanghai. Disenchanted, blind American diplomat Todd dreams of someday opening a nightclub, but figures he needs to have the right bouncers and the right girls working there; he shares this dream with Mr. Matsuda. Sofia lives with her relatives and daughter Katya; she works in a gentlemen's club, earning money doing whatever the guys pay for. She meets Todd one night, and he seems to think she's the right girl for his dream place. He bets all his money on a horse race, wins, and goes to hire Sofia; she jumps at the chance to work at a job without having to be on her back. A year later, Mr. Matsuda comes back to town, he and Todd chat, and the business is thriving -- but World War II looms, with rumor of the Japanese invasion in the wings. Lots of this and that, Sofia's family wants to flee to Hong Kong, but Sofia needs $300 to go; Todd lends it to her without knowing why (but suspects it's for her to leave). The family makes plans just as the Japanese are marching on Shanghai, and Sofia is told the family is taking Katya, and she'll come later; she accepts it. When Todd hears of this, he's upset and goes to find Sofia, telling her she has to stay with her daughter. They rush to the shipyards (where people are loading up en masse, and being shelled by the Japanese), get Katya, and they are all together. They finally take the boat ride Katya had been asking for (though not to the same place, but it's a boat ride), just the three of them. A man begins to play a trumpet on the boat, and Katya goes to listen; Sofia takes Todd's hand and they interlace their fingers. Moving film reel
