—The Village Voice
“A delicate work of low-key modernism, imbued with fragile melancholia and an astonishing turn by none other than Hou Hsiao-hsien.”
“Arguably Edward Yang’s finest achievement.”
From cinematic visionary Edward Yang, TAIPEI STORY is an exploration of the complexities of relationships. We follow the lives of a couple, Chin and Lung, as they navigate the challenges of a changing cityscape and shifting cultural values. Through Yang’s meticulous direction, the narrative unfolds with quiet intensity, capturing the nuances of generational gaps and the struggle to find identity in a rapidly evolving society.
