Clean

YesAsia Editorial Description

Can an ordinary woman leave behind her painful past and face her future?

Celebrated Hong Kong actress Maggie Cheung won the coveted Best Actress Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival for her harrowing performance in Clean. Cheung's ex-husband Olivier Assayas (who also directed Cheung in Irma Vep) directs, and wrote the script especially for Cheung, who turns in a magnificent performance, and even performs two songs! Co-starring American actor Nick Nolte and French actress Beatrice Dalle, Clean is a moving, beautifully-rendered tale about one wounded woman's struggle for acceptance in a world that simply will not forget.

Emily Wang (Maggie Cheung) is a struggling singer whose life has been a painful pageant of drugs, regrets, and destructive emotions. After her partner Lee (James Johnston) overdoses in a desolate hotel room, Emily must serve a six-month jail sentence, and upon her exit desires to become a new woman. But the world - and those around her - will not soon forget who she was. Emily longs to be reunited with her son Jay (James Dennis), and to finally be a good mother to him, but Lee's parents Albrecht (Nick Nolte) and Rosemary (Martha Henry) are not willing to give up Jay so quickly. Ultimately, Emily must find the faith and strength in herself to finally come Clean, in both body and soul.

The Hong Kong version DVD comes with features from the premiere, the trailer and interviews with director Olivier Assayas, Maggie Cheung, and the cast.

  王雅薇(張曼玉飾演)是一名過氣搖滾歌星的妻子,一直與丈夫沉淪毒海之中。他們過著顛沛流離的生活,連照顧兒子的責任都推卸在安柏爺爺(尼基諾飾演)身上。

  豈料丈夫某日因為吸食過量毒品而殞命,王雅薇身上亦被搜出有毒品,被判入獄半年。經過半年的牢獄生涯,王雅薇孑然一身飛往法國巴黎想重新做人,可是王雅薇還有心願未了,一方面是想完成當歌星的夢想,另一方面就是跟身在加拿大的親生兒子相聚。為了實現心願,王雅薇積極努力工作及戒掉毒癮。

  碰巧奶奶因身患重病需飛往倫敦治療,爺爺要照顧她無暇分身,將小孫兒交給母親王雅薇代為照顧,對於與她闊別多年的兒子重聚,到底王雅薇能否克盡母親責任,而兒子又能否接受這個曾吸毒的母親呢?

  Emily Wang (Maggie Cheung) is a woman who wrestles with her dream of becoming a singer, her fitness as a mother, and daily life without her partner Lee (James Johnston). Her past is riddled with drugs and regrets, the result of which left Lee dead in a desolate motel room in Hamilton, Ontario, and landed Emily with a six-month jail sentence. The only thing that she desires for the future is a loving relationship with her son Jay, who is being cared for by Lee's parents, Albrecht (Nick Nolte) and Rosemary (Martha Henry). While Rosemary blames Emily for the death of Lee, Albrecht recognizes the importance of the bond between a mother and her son, and his faith sets the standard for the faith Emily must find in herself. Clean follows Emily to Hamilton, Paris, London and San Francisco and in three languages (English, French and Cantonese), as she battles for a place in a world reluctant to forget the woman she has been and unwilling to accept her as the woman she longs to be.

Transcendental Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I loved this movey. I thought the acting was marvelous and consistent. I felt touched. The topic is complex, but treated in a subtle fashion.
Maggie Cheung is truly versatile and a phenomena.
