    It has been a long time since I found a new fantasy treasure of pure escape on youtube.

    Trailer




    Quote Ashes of Love” is a 2018 fairy-tale Chinese drama; it is based on the novel “Heavy Sweetness, Ash-Like Frost” and tells the story of the undying love between two immortals.

    Backstory

    The action takes place in the prehistorical era, in a time when the six realms were reigning independently in harmony. The realms featured in this drama are: celestial realm, floral, demon and human realm. Although the members of the first three realms enjoy immortality, who rules supreme on all six realms is the implacable god of Fate.

    Important Notes:

    Although the immortal beings do not experience death by aging or illness, they can die as a result of a magical weapon or powerful spell.
    The Celestial Realm and the Demon Realms do not have a good versus evil connotation. Both realms are populated with both righteous or greed-driven beings. The Celestial Realm is a well organized empire-like society, while the Demon Realm is a coalition of several kingdoms and is a warrior-like society.

    Premise of the Story

    The Floral Fairy (the ruler of the Floral Realm) is severely injured and has little time to live as she gives birth to her child. Knowing that her daughter is fated to experience great tribulations due to the fate of a tragic love within the next 10.000 years, she feeds the newborn the Unfeeling Pill. The magic pill has the power to keep her daughter, Jin Mi, from experiencing anything beyond friendship, in an attempt to cheat Fate.

    Before she dies, the Fairy orders everyone in the realm to keep Jin Mi’s birth a secret. She establishes a magical barrier designed to not let her daughter have any contact with the outside world and seals her true nature with a spell. However, 4000 years later, the barrier is breached by mistake by the Fire Immortal, the second son of the Celestial King. Gravely wounded (as a result of an attack) he is saved and taken care of by Jin Mi. As a reward for her kind gesture and unaware of her true identity, Fire Immortal agrees to free her from her prison. He takes her to the Celestial realm where she becomes his reading assistant.

    It follows a sweet, yet tragic love-story that will have to go through the trials of life and death in order to be purified. This is not a sappy love story. It is well written and it comes with as much action as romance. I think that if it weren’t for the language barrier, dramas like this one would be critically acclaimed worldwide and would receive international awards. Here is a Trailer, together with the ending theme “Upwards to the Moon“.
    It is a compelling chick flick and has many many episodes. It comes with English subtitles. Even though it is entertainment, it brings the Tao to mind.

    Quote Astraea

    When disease nearly wipes out the human race, a telepathic teenage girl named Astraea believes her visions confirm that survivors are living in Northern Canada. She leads her doubting brother on a five thousand mile journey, through a silent America, and into the snowbound wilderness, hoping to re-build life as she knew it. As they head North, her clairvoyance leads them to encounter another couple homesteading on a remote lake in Maine. The grief and complexity – as well as the excitement and comfort – of communal living pits itself against Astraea’s desire to keep moving and find her. Astraea is a post-apocalyptic film that finally shows not what humanity is running from, but what we’re running toward.

    Quote Willow Creek/

    Willow Creek demonstrates one thing from the outset: Goldthwait has a keen knowledge of Bigfoot history and of the nature of the Bigfoot-seeking community. That much is obvious from the fact that the film takes much of its inspiration from real-life Bigfoot-based incidents and cases. The movie tells the story of Jim and Kelly (actors Bryce Johnson and Alexie Gilmour) who head off to Humboldt County, California – in search of the site of the legendary and controversial Bigfoot encounter of Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in 1967. It’s clear that, of the two, Jim is the Bigfoot enthusiast. Kelly is his girlfriend who does her very best to put up with what she sees as Jim’s growing, tedious, monster obsession.

    For Jim, the whole thing is very much an adventurous road trip. And, with that in mind, the pair takes with them a camcorder to record every aspect of the trip – and, hopefully, to film Bigfoot, too. The first sign we get of the disturbing activity that soon follows comes when the duo turn up in the town of Willow Creek and are cryptically warned to keep out of the woods – something which, rather inevitably, only spurs Jim on even more. The banter between Kelly and Jim very much comes to an end when, after trekking miles into the woods, in search of the hallowed ground on which Bigfoot (or a man in a suit) trod back in 1967, the pair becomes lost. As in totally lost. Concern and worry becomes downright fear when something large and violent stalks their camp as they sit, terrified out of their wits, in their tent. I will not give the conclusion of the movie away, except to say that Bigfoot fans will not be disappointed. Nor were those that reviewed it.

    I highly rate this film and as you say worth a re-watch. I originally watched it upon its release in 1997 and returned to it last night in fact. It seemed to mean so much more, watching it 23 years later. Many parallels can be drawn from this story line and David Icke's theories on the Reptilian Agenda, Zacharia Sitchin's writings on the Ananarchy. Apart from this, it is incredibly stylish in a neo-noir sense.
