Dangerous Affair is a 2015 film from Mongolia directed by Ts. Khuselbaatar.

The story, which may be a tiny little bit similar to Fatal Attraction, revolves around Munkh (E. Munkhtur), a young attorney. Munkh has a pretty wife, Tselmeg. Together they have a five-year-old son named Uuldeg, and Tselmeg is pregnant with their second child.

So naturally Munkh goes out and has a fling. At a party he takes notice of Tuul, a businesswoman and more importantly a curvaceous temptress (Kh. Bayarmaa). By chance he meets her again when someone's blocked his car in the parking lot and she gives him a ride. She hires him for some legal work, which leads to dinner as Tselmeg is off visiting her father for the weekend. That leads to a night of hot sex over at Tuul's place.

In the morning they agree to part amicably, and they never see each other again—no, just kidding, of course that doesn't happen. Tselmeg is back in town from her weekend with her father, but Tuul calls Munkh up, he tells his wife that he has to work late at the office, and he and Tuul have a second night of wild sex. Unfortunately for Munkh however, Tuul wants more, and when Munkh finally tells her in no uncertain terms that he's married and they can't fool around anymore, she refuses to go quietly.

Tropes:

  • Bathtub Scene: A completely gratuitous bit in the montage of memories between Munkh and Tuul near the end has her lounging naked in the bathtub while Munkh stands and talks to her.
  • Betty and Veronica: Before it becomes clear how crazy Tuul is, the contrast between Munkh's sweetly nurturing wife and his hot, passionate side piece is already clear.
  • Dutch Angle: The picture is sharply tilted for the scene where Munkh barges into Tuul's place of work, throws the toys that she sent to Uuldeg back at her, and yells for her to get out of his life.
  • Fake-Out Opening: The opening scene has a woman on the bus, who gets creeped out by the guy dressed in a hoodie sitting behind her. She walks through a pedestrian underpass and into an apartment building, Creepy Hoodie Guy trailing behind. She gets into the elevator, and so does the creepy guy, who rushes in at the last moment. He stands behind her, until he reaches into his pocket with his right hand and taps her shoulder with his left...and then he gets out of his elevator because it's his stop, leaving the woman alone and safe. And it's even more of a fake-out because the woman is not the main character, she's only Munkh and Tselmeg's babysitter, and she has nothing to do with the rest of the story.

  • Impairment Shot: The camera shot is all blurry when Munkh regains consciousness after being whacked in the head, only to find himself Bound and Gagged at Tuul's place.
  • Sanity Slippage: Tuul gets crazier and crazier over the course of the movie, until by the end, she seems to believe that little Uuleng is actually her son.
  • Staircase Tumble: A violent confrontation between Munkh and Tuul ends with him shoving her, her tumbling down a flight of stairs, and her losing her baby by Munkh (which apparently was real).
  • Stalker with a Crush: After Munkh brushes her off, Tuul starts stalking him, showing up at his work, calling him at all hours of the night, showing up at his apartment building. Finally, she strikes up an acquaintance with Tselmeg and worms her way into Munkh's life again that way.
  • The Villain Knows Where You Live: Munkh is pretty startled when Tuul shows up at the apartment building where he lives.
  • Woman Scorned: Tuul follows Munkh around. She shows up at his work. She shows up at his home. She kidnaps his son (she returns him). She finally kidnaps him, lying in wait in the parking garage of his building, whacking him in the head, then tying him up...all because she wants him for herself.
