Directed by Edward Yang | 1985

With Tsai Chin, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Wu Nien-jen

“I am sometimes convinced that film culture has yet to recover from Yang’s passing.”
—Artforum

This touchstone of the Taiwanese New Wave, master director Edward Yang’s (Yi Yi, A Brighter Summer Day) long unavailable second feature, is a ghostly, profound portrait of urban alienation. Amid the high-rise wonderland of boom-time 1980s Taipei, a multitude of characters struggle to keep pace with the country’s rapid modernization, including a corporate ladder-climbing office worker (Tsai) and her boyfriend (filmmaker Hou Hsiao-hsien), a former baseball player who escapes reality by endlessly watching taped baseball games.

Restored by The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project at Cineteca di Bologna/L’immagine Ritrovata laboratory in association with the Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique and Hou Hsiao-hsien.
