From Director Wong Kar Wai comes the definitive version of Ashes of Time, an epic martial arts masterpiece of larger-than-life characters, breathtaking landscapes and exquisite fight scenes. The story centers on Ouyang Feng (Leslie Cheung), a heartbroken and cynical man who spends his days alone in the desert, connecting expert swordsmen with those seeking revenge and willing to pay for it. As Ouyang narrates his tale, interweaving the stories of his unusual clients, old friends and future foes, he begins to realize the mistakes of his own past, and how his fear of rejection may have led him to a life of exile.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For the love of all things sensual and mysterious, see this one on a big screen.
Fresh: Ashes is glorious and ultimately wrenching, but it's a tough journey.
Fresh: In a move that would become his trademark, Wong rejects the happy ending for the almost ecstatically sad, making your heart soar even as he tells you, essentially, that it's impossible, all of it -- that it'll never work.
Rotten: I struggled to engage with the archetypes contained within the images, even with all that meticulously restored golden-yellow sand.
The Greatest Movie of Leslie Cheung!!!
I bought this movie, and it is NOT in English, only English subtitled. And really felt unhappy about no HD version for this, because it is really really a movie that worth to and need to be viewed in HD...
is it in english?
the language format says its in english, however the preview is, im assuming mandarin, and SUBTITLED in english... if this movie is DUBBED in english, then i'm NOT buying it and you shouldn't either... english dubs of classic movies like this are horrid
MOVIE IS 5 STARS. iTunes is 3 stars or less.
Why ? How dare your make this movie not even 1GB , 'Cause less GB mean bad color and ugly picture, but this movie up to 5 stars or even more, so how can you do this stu*** thing to all your customers. itunes fixed it, NOW.
