Wong Kar-Wai
The ultimate version of Wong Kar-Wai's classic swordplay epic!

Ouyang Feng lives alone in a desert, where he acts as a middle man to various swordsmen in ancient China. Since the woman he loved rejected him, his wounded heart has made him pitiless and cynical, and his discovery of a magic wine that causes one to forget the past, seems his only way out. But his encounters with friends, clients and future enemies make him conscious of this solitude.

ASHES OF TIME REDUX is the ultimate version of Wong Kar-Wai's classic swordplay epic. Its extraordinary cinematography and innovative action sequences can finally be seen exactly as the filmmakers intended.
