YesAsia Editorial Description

"The flag is still. The wind is calm. It's the heart of man that is in turmoil!" - from the Buddhist canon

An event fifteen years in the making, Ashes of Time Redux restores Wong Kar Wai's lone martial arts epic to its full glory. Redux is a "revisiting" of Wong's classic 1994 film, with a tightened edit, an enhanced image worthy of Christopher Doyle's stunning cinematography, and a darker, richer score from composer Wu Tong and cellist Yo Yo Ma. Ashes of Time Redux is worthy of multiple revisits - not only for its brilliant re-imagining of Louis Cha's swordplay heroes, but also for yet another glimpse of the late Leslie Cheung, whose passion never burned brighter than beneath the onscreen guidance of Wong Kar Wai.

First Press releases come with limited senotype film cell; only while supplies last.

Product Information

Director: Kar Wai Wong

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. 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.

bit of rubbish Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
This film has nothing to do with Kum Yung's original novel about the wicked east and poison west characters. It is really weird and Leslie Cheung had tried his best to perform well. However, the story is a mess and very silly.

This is such a better edit. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is such a better edit of the film!

Fans should rejoice at the restoration. I'm not certain that "murky" was even good enough to describe what the old print looked like. For those who needed the English subs in the old version, the subs were barely visible (and, of course, they were embedded into the print).

The presentation of the film is still grainy (that was the style of the film), but in no way is murky or even slighly lacking in clarity.

Just great!.

Great Wong Kar Wai film Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
"Ashes of Time Redux" is a kind of visual tone poem loosely based upon Louis Cha's "Eagle Shooting Heroes". I am so happy to have this recut and remastered digital version. It looks and sounds much more gorgeous than the rather murky VHS tape of of the film I'd seen before.

To say the film has a plot may be a bit of a stretch; it tells of Ouyang Feng (Leslie Cheung), who lives on the edge of nowhere and hires renegade swordsmen as hitmen for people who need to have someone bumped off. It also tells intertwining stories of the people who seek Ouyang's services or otherwise pass through his life. The storyline is ineffable, poetic, glancing, rather than a traditional narrative.

The film boasts a dream cast, including, in addition to Leslie, Brigitte Lin, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Charley Yeung, Jacky Cheung, Carina Lau, and, in a small role, Maggie Cheung. For me, this is one of Leslie's finest performances; he invests his rather passive character with a wry humor that makes him riveting. Cinematographer Christopher Doyle's imagery is spectacular, delicious, beautiful! You will not be able to turn away from the action sequences, which were directed by Sammo Hung and shot unlike any other action scenes you've ever seen. And the film's music is just splendid.

"Ashes of Time" is not for everyone; those unwilling to savor its poetic approach may simply find the movie to be weird and a bit tedious, particularly during its slower first half. However, if you are willing to play along with director Wong Kar Wai's unique vision, then you will regard this film, particularly in its "Redux" incarnation, to be an unforgettable classic.

Fuzzy quality equals artsy? Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Okay, so the story doesn't make sense unless you were actually one of the characters but I guess that's everyone else's life outside of your own. The film quality itself remains fuzzy & of course a white costume or background doesn't do wonders for subtitles also in white. I guess I need to re-visit this film to see if my perception on life has changed; then again, I admit I never had an eye for what makes an artsy film.

I checked, and there is an R1 version of this film available, but at this time, I do not know how the quality compares with the MeiAh version.
