Can’t help it but wants to share it here. A scene from ASHES OF TIME. Can’t wait to watch the Redux!
Muyong Yin (played by Brigitte Lin): Who are you anyway?
Ouyang Feng (played by Leslie Cheung): Don’t you remember me?
Yin turns around and looked at Feng, mistaken him for her “lover”.
Yin: You once promised to marry me. Of course I remember you.
Feng: Did I really say that?
Yin: You passed by Gusu City the other day. We drank together under the peach tree. You touched my face…. And said you’d marry my sister if I had one. You know I am a woman in disguise. Why did you still say that?
Feng: A man can’t be serious when he is drunk.
Yin: Because of your promise, I’ve been waiting for you until today. I once asked you to take me with you…. But you refused. You said you cannot love two persons at the same time. Surely you love Yin! Why did you fall in love with another woman? Do you know I went to look for that woman? Because someone said that you love her most. I had wanted to kill her. But I didn’t in the end. Because I didn’t want to prove that she is the one you most love.
Yin: I once asked myself… whether I am the woman you love most… but now I don’t want to know the answer anymore. If ever I ask you the same question..… please don’t tell me the truth! No matter how unwilling it is for you to say it, please don’t tell me that the person you love most is not me!
Superb soundtrack. Superb cinematography. Superb acting from Brigitte.
“Ouyang Feng: I once heard someone say, if you have to lose something, the best way to keep it is to keep it in your memory.”
