Synopsis: 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 Korean actor 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.
Chen Kaige's Wu Ji (literally title: Infinity, English title: The Promise), is a mega budget fantasy film with an all-star cast, starring Cecilia Cheung, Jang Dong-Gun, Hiroyuki Sanada, Liu Ye, Nicholas Tse, Chen Hong and Cheng Qian.
