Every family has its own set of rules. For the Lu family, the rule is: violence. After getting released from youth detention center, Ji Ping (Pang Chin Yu, Orz Boyz!) has no choice but to live with his father Ming (Chang Han, Taipei Exchanges), who only knows how to communicate with his fists. To prevent Ji Ping from getting into trouble again, Ming takes away his son's privacy and freedom by tearing down his bedroom door and locking him at home. Ji Ping manages to escape by climbing out the window, but finds there isn't really a place for him in society either. Besides carrying on a tiring battle with his son, Ming also has to deal with his own father (Golden Bell-winning veteran Ding Chiang) whom he resents, and the piling debts and expenses left to him by his father and son. The directorial debut of screenwriter An Bang, Black Sheep acutely depicts the struggles of family and fatherhood through the contentious relationships between three generations of father and son.
A Brighter Summer Day (1991) (Blu-ray) (New 4K Digital Restoration) (English Subtitled) (Taiwan Version) Blu-ray Region All
Yang Jing Yi (Actor)
| Chang Chen (Actor)
| Elaine Jin (Actor)
| Cheung Kwok Chu (Actor)
From visionary Taiwanese director Edward Yang comes A Brighter Summer Day, an epic four-hour film set in 1960s Taiwan. Using a cast of teenage actors, including Chang Chen, Chang Han and Lawrence Ko, and natural locations, Yang brings what looks like a tale of rival street gangs to the screen. But his focus is really one young man, who faces his own individual struggles as the people of Taiwan come to grips with their personal identity. The boy's generation is the first born to Taiwan after the massive immigration of Nationalist Chinese from the Mainland following the rise of Communism. These new Taiwanese struggle to define their own identity, and find inspiration in sources from Chinese swordplay novels, to Russian literature, to Japanese weaponry, to American pop culture and music.
The world of A Brighter Summer Day is opposed to its hopeful title, and reflects one of uncertainty, where the future has never seemed quite so cloudy or unpredictable. Yang draws upon the trials of his own childhood - the daily dangers of gang violence, his own rural background, and the true-life murder of a thirteen year-old girl by a fourteen year-old boy - to weave a complex tapestry of the anxieties and fears facing a nation uprooted by change and exile. A stunning, mesmerizing film which exemplifies the notion of film as art, A Brighter Summer Day is one of the definitive films of modern Taiwanese cinema.
Betelnut Girls (2016) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Taiwan Version) DVD Region 3
Paul Hsu (Actor)
| Peggy Tseng (Actor)
| Hondulas (Actor)
| Doris Wang (Actor)
In Taiwan, highways and roads frequented by long-haul drivers are often lined with brightly lit stands selling betel nuts that provide a buzz when chewed. The betel nuts are usually prepared and sold by scantily clad young women called "betel nut beauties." Director Xue Xianjian (Echoes of Time) explores the work and world of the betel nut beauties in Betelnut Girls, starring Peggy Tseng (When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep), Paul Hsu (Office Girls), Doris Wang (Days We Stared at the Sun) and variety program regulars Hondulas (Miss in Kiss) and Bruce Chen (Lion Dancing).
Li Zhen (Peggy Tseng) works as a betel nut beauty at night in order to support her family. Even when faced with threats and temptations, she never lowers her head. Greenhorn officer Kang Wei (Paul Hsu) is in charge of policing the betel nut stands, but he is reluctant to fine the betel nut beauties when he sees how hard they work every day. Regularly crossing paths because of their conflicting professions, Li Zhen and Kang Wei begin to develop a close relationship over time. Life affords Li Zhen little respite, however, as she struggles to deal with her father's gambling debt and the harsh words thrown at her.
