Chow Yun Fat
Production designer-turned-director Tony Au crafted this mature and sentimental allegory about reincarnation, lost love and inexorable tragedy, which ranks as one of the most melancholy fantasies in memory. It also remains the only film to date to co-star Chow Yun Fat and Brigitte Lin . Chow plays Song Yu, a revered symphony conductor, plagued by visions of a beautiful, beckoning maiden in traditional attire and a terracotta statue bearing his likeness. At an exhibition of Qin artifacts, he encounters Cheung Yuet Heung (Lin, sporting the close-cropped male hairstyle she had in PEKING OPERA BLUES), the spitting image of the woman in his dream. She, too, has been experiencing visions, but of a more disconcerting nature, like Yu being strangled by imperial soldiers and others she's too afraid to impart. With the help of a blind medium, Yu learns that he and Yuet Heung are the reincarnation of these figures, lovers who met a tragic fate 2200 years earlier. Together, the two try to come to grips with their emotions and the question of Yu's devoted girlfriend, Wah Lei (Cher Yeung), who correctly surmises that there is no place for her in a love spanning twenty two centuries.
