From Ashes To Ashes is Leslie Cheung's one and only directorial debut. This short film produced 13 years ago, featured Leslie Cheung as a superstar level photographer with the late Anita Mui as a couple, loves smoking very much. Seeing their career and family taking off at a successful level, everything changed when their only on screen son was diagnosed with lukemia.......
As with the completion of the short film, Gor Gor had the idea of directing a feature length film. He spent the next three years to gather funds and rope in his onscreen charismatic partner, Anita Mui to act in it. But it was a pity he ended his life on 1 April 2003. The project never took off when Anita passed away at the end of 2003.
Savour this rare short film. In cinematography standards, Cheung has a long way to go. But it is just pure rememberance as we continue to review this film.
