The Promise - An Epic fantasy known as the most expensive Chinese film to date (Regular & Limited Edition Region Free DVD release)


Empowered by the love of a slave (Dong-kun), a royal concubine (Cheung) is given the chance to make an extraordinary decision.

Known as the most expensive Chinese film to date, the latest from director Kaige (Farewell My Concubine) boasts cinematography by Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and stunt coordinator Dion Lam (Infernal Affairs, Spiderman 2).

This epic fantasy revolves around a love triangle between a general, a princess and a slave. A young woman (played by Cecilia Cheung) is the most beautiful princess in the world. Spoiled by the King, she lives a life of extreme luxury. But this life comes with a price in that she will never enjoy true love unless time can flow backwards and the dead can come back to life. The slave (played by JANG Dong-Gun), who is sincerely in love with her, uses his ability to run ‘faster than the wind’ to break the chain that fate has put on her.


The Promise is in stock now, shipping as Region Free DVD release as Regular Edition (US$ 14.90) and Limited Edition (US$ 17.90). The The Promise Original Film Soundtrack is available at US$ 15.90 respectively.
