Swordsman Ou-yang Feng was once a ruthless bounty hunter for whoever would pay. Now leaving the killing to others, he owns a desert inn where he spends the day pining after his brother’s wife. Among his current employees is his friend Huang Yao-shi, whose annual visits are one of his rare pleasures.
A 2008 re-assembled version of the 1994 film by Wong Kar-wai (who shot Chungking Express during this film’s long production), Ashes of Time Redux stars two of Wong’s favorites: Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung. This free-floating wuxia is a striking, mesmerising viewing experience.
