Noted art director Tony Au Ding-ping helms this acclaimed romantic fantasy featuring Chow Yun-fat and Brigitte Lin Ching-hsia. Sony Yu (Chow) is a famous orchestra conductor who recently suffers from a series of bizarre visions of a beautiful woman and a Qin dynasty era terracotta statue. When he ventures to a exhibit of such ancient relics, he meets Cheung Yuet-heung (Lin), who not only looks exactly like the woman in his dreams, but also suffers from similarly intense but decidedly more violent visions -- in one Yu gets garroted by the imperial guard and others are simply too gory to be divulged. Soon the two consult with a medium who takes them that they are the reincarnation of a pair of lovers murdered some 2000 years previous. Yu's girlfriend Wah-lei realizes that she has no part in this relationship and graciously bows out.
