Ash Is Purest White 15 S
Much more than a Chinese gangster film, Ash Is Purest White is the final instalment in critically acclaimed filmmaker Zhangke Jia’s unofficial trilogy (after A Touch Of Sin and Mountains May Depart) that explores both a personal tale of two lovers as well as a social realist view into China’s break-neck development.
