The great names in cinema
CHINA , France
| 141 minutes | 2018
For his thirteenth feature, the Chinese filmmaker follows a couple embroiled in the local underworld of Datong City. Taking up his favourite themes — loyalty, the loss of identity, past regrets — the director delivers a rich, novelesque pageant spanning two decades. Ash is Purest White is the work of a supreme artist using his powers above all to portray the transmutation of his homeland: a country that, with Jia’s eye for detail, is never anything less than an object of fascination.
