“Furnished with more sheer physical presence (including characters, settings, and objects) than any other fiction film I know of from the 90s… In fact, this film is so uncommonly good that Yang's other very impressive works pale beside it.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

The late Edward Yang’s magnum opus—a monumental account of growing up in a volatile 60s Taiwan—follows one boy’s experiences with street gangs, violence, and first love. Yang brings a novelist’s eye for character and detail to this watershed work of the Taiwanese New Wave. In Mandarin and Taiwanese with English titles.
