Preview, A Chinese gangster love story — “Ash is Purest White”

Director Zhangke Jia gave us “Still Life” and “A Touch of Sin,” but earlier he expressed a fondness for gangster tales.

Nothing in this trailer — she meets him on the dance floor, he drops his gun, revealing his hidden life — surprises save for the setting. Quite striking.

Look for “Ash is Purest White” in limited release March 15.
