This is the third consecutive year that a Chinese director has won the Golden Lion. Last year's best picture award went to Jia Zhangke for "Still Life."

Jia's "Wuyong", or 'Useless,' took the Orizzonti Doc Prize at this year's Venice Film Festival.

Lee's movie, called "Se, Jie" in Chinese, is set in the Japanese-occupied Shanghai in 1940s. The boldness of the sex scenes in the movie between a spy girl played by novice actress Tang Wei and powerful political figure played by Tony Leung became a major topic at the festival.

Jury president Zhang Yimou said Lee's movie has won applause from all of the seven-member jury. Lee had made an excellent integration of international resources while filming "Lust, Caution," which played an important role in winning him the award.
