Part of BAMcinématek
Directed by Edward Yang | 1991

With Chang Chen, Lisa Yang, Chang Kuo-Chu

“One of those movies that, by slow accretion of detail and bold dramatic vision, disclose the structure and feeling of an entire world.”
—A. O. Scott, The New York Times

One of the towering masterpieces of the 1990s, Edward Yang’s breathtaking epic charts the coming-of-age of a teenage boy (Chang) as he grows up amidst political turmoil, warring street gangs, and the encroaching influence of American pop culture in 1960s Taiwan. The film’s novelistic sweep—its expansive running time, sprawling cast, masterful accumulation of details—creates a richly-realized, intoxicating portrait of young love, rock ‘n roll, and teenage abandon.
