A broken-hearted hit man moves to the desert where he finds skilled swordsmen to carry out his contract killings. (via IMDB) In 2008, Wong Kar Wai re-edited and re-released the film under the title Ashes of Time Redux that, despite the digital restoration, presents a shorter cut. The redux version is at the moment the only good-quality edition available on the market (theatres and home video). (via Wikipedia) Edit Translation

A touching, melancholic film that deserves the title of classic -required viewing for wuxia lovers!

(Almost) perfect movie, it moved me so much. I loved all characters, especially the cynical narrator protagonist. It somehow has a western feel to it that I really value. I wish they could show more of the girl swordswoman (the wonderful Ching Sia Lin) though. The action was minimalistic, but top-notch indeed. The plot twists/surprises are only based on the non-linear narration, but they work great. The emotional connection that I felt towards the characters was surprising, considering the limited amount of screen time they devoted to each one, something that speaks volumes about the talent of all the actors. A classic wuxia now, unfortunately the original version is probably lost (well please tell me/ send me a link if you actually find it please), so I can't compare the two versions/ comment on the differences.

9.5/10 for me.
