Ashes of Time Redux (2009) This definitive version of Wong Kar Wai's epic film has been restored, re-edited, digitally colorized and re-scored, with solos by acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma. "Ashes of Time," originally completed in 1994, was the first film from director Wong Kar Wai's Jet Tone production company. The film received only a limited release and, in the years since, the existing prints and negatives had become damaged or destroyed. "To rectify this situation," Wong Kar Wai said, "we decided to revisit this project and to create the definitive version." He and his colleagues began the process by gathering as much existing material as could be found and restoring those elements, using advanced technology that had not existed in the early '90's. He also collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma to create a new soundtrack, rearranging some of the original compositions by Freddie Chan and adding some original ones. 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. Extras: "Born From the Ashes: The Making of Ashes of Time Redux," Q & A with Wong Kar Wai. (Sony).
