1994 · Hong Kong · Directed by Wong Kar-wai
In ancient China, on the edge of a vast desert, swordsman Ouyang Feng (Leslie Cheung) lives the life of a vagabond, controlling a network of deadly assassins. Pitiless and cynical, his heart has long been wounded by a love he neglected then lost. But as seasons, friends and enemies come and go, he begins to reflect back upon the origin of his solitude.
The film is inspired by characters from Louis Cha's novel The Eagle-Shooting Heroes. Action-packed and visually dazzling, with an all-star cast of Hong Kong cinema greats and extraordinary cinematography by Christopher Doyle, Ashes of Time Redux is the ultimate edition of Wong Kar-Wai's long-lost martial arts classic, brilliantly re-cut and remixed for the 21st century.
