"A Soul Haunted By Painting" is based on a true story of Chinese painter Pan Yuliang, whose work was celebrated in Paris, yet rejected at home. At fifteen years old, she was sold into prostitution. Her life changes when she marries a high official. Through her husband, she finds expression in western painting, and furthers her studies in Paris. Although internationally acclaimed as an artist, her past always continued to haunt her at home in China; and it was only after her death that she finally received the acceptance she so desperately sought.
Pan Yuliang is played by Gong Li, China's best known movie star. Directed by Huang Shuqin, a woman famous for highlighting the influence of tradition on gender issues, among the movie's themes is the debate over the use of live, nude models for painting, an issue first raised in the 1920s and still unsettled in China today.
