天涯歌女 The Wandering Songbird
One of the greatest moments in Ang Lee's Lust, Caution. She has no country; she has no family. She is a lonely soul drifting in the wartime. But she has the man's real-self and affectionateness when their hands hold. It's the moment two lonely souls come to attached to each other.
When I searhed for relevant clips on Youtube.com, I found two Chinese legendary actresses, Zhou Xuan and Li Xianglan, also sang the song. The song in different context delivers very different messages.
I never saw any movie starring Zhou Xuan or Li Xianglan in theaters, because they were great stars belonging to my grand parents' generation. But I often read stories about them when I read articles or references regard to Chinese film history.

The clip is from a movie called Street Angle. Zhou Xuan is very cute and her voice is sweet in this film.
