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.

Nice action scenes, great colors, average plot. I'm not saying the plot is bad, but it could be better. Overall, it's a good movie

Good movie
I saw this movie in a small thearter in the US. It was a very good movie if you liked martial arts and gorgeus landscapes and costumes. The story was also very interesting. I took my girlfriend to see it and she was at first skeptical, but now she really likes it.

better than Hero and all other kung-fu flicks
This movie has some really nice scenes. The experience might have been enhanced if I had a plasma tv to watch this with.

I was surprised by how Jang Dong Gun and the other japanese actor could speak Chinese so well.
