YesAsia Editorial Description

Hsiao Ya Chuan (Taipei Exchanges) directs the acclaimed drama Old Fox set in late 1980s Taiwan. Starring veteran Akio Chen, Liu Kuan Ting (A Sun) and child actor Bai Run Yin (Dear Tenant), the film uses a boy's growth, experiences and realizations to reflect on the rapid social changes, widening wealth gap and changing values of the time. Japanese actress Kadowaki Mugi (Aristocrats), Eugenie Liu (Mon Mon Mon Monsters), Huang Jian Wei and James Wen also appear in the film. Old Fox won four prizes at the 60th Golden Horse Film Awards including Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Akio Chen, Best Makeup & Costume Design and Best Original Film Score.

In 1989 Taiwan, 11-year-old boy Liao Jie (Bai Run Yin) and his frugal father Liao Tai Lai (Liu Kuan Ting) are slowly saving up money in hopes of buying a home. They believe their goal will be reached in three years, but the world around them is changing. With property prices surging, their funds are suddenly insufficient. Frustrated, Liao Jie realizes this is the reality of being poor. In comparison to Liao Tai Lai, their wealthy landlord Xie (Akio Chen), whom everyone calls "Old Fox," seems better equipped to give the young boy guidance to come out ahead in life. Old Fox teaches Liao Jie about the cold and cynical ways of the world, but what Liao Jie learns may hurt those around him.

This edition comes with a 68-page booklet and special features including deleted scenes, director's Q&A and commentary.

A young fox learns the trap
Nearly four decades of martial law came to an end in Taiwan in 1987. Along with the lifting of martial law came ripples of changes to Taiwanese life and society. Hsiao Ya Chuan's Old Fox is set in 1989 during this transitional era of myriad economic and social changes.

These changes at first elude Liao Tai Lai (Liu Kuan Ting), an honest and hardworking restaurant server who lives frugally with his 11-year-old son Liao Jie (Bai Run Yin). Tai Lai has been slowly saving up to buy a home, but unbeknownst to him, property prices have surged beyond his expectations. While Tai Lai takes the news in stride, reality hits hard for the young Liao Jie who has stubbornly latched on to the hope of having their own home. While simmering in bitter frustration, Liao Jie meets their landlord whom everyone calls Old Fox (Akio Chen).

Seeing a bit of himself in the tenacious boy, Old Fox takes a liking to Liao Jie, and takes him under the wing. The wily rich man, who weathered much in his own youth, dispenses cold hard advice about how to get ahead in life at the expense of others, and Liao Jie listens and learns for the chance to buy that home. Old Fox's life lessons, however, run counter to Liao Jie's father who always chooses compassion in the face of difficulty.

Bai Run Yin, who has been hailed as an acting prodigy in Taiwan, realistically captures the two sides of Liao Jie, as he fluctuates between the immature intensity of an upset child and the quiet rumination of a considerate son. The intrepid yet impressionable boy sees the prize, but he also gradually sees the trap personified by the lonely Old Fox. Liao Jie's turmoil, mistakes, growth and realizations recall the moral dilemmas we encounter and pivotal choices we make in our journey to becoming a certain kind of adult.

Just as Liao Jie reaches the start of a crossroads, so too does Taiwan in this period. Old Fox uses small personal stories to reflect on the greater tides of choices and changes affecting life from one generation to another. From Tai Lai's money-saving hacks like turning off the hot water heater early to doing piecemeal assembly at home for extra money, writer-director Hsiao Ya Chuan fills the film with slice-of-life details drawn from his own memories and experiences growing up. These simple nostalgic details easily resonate with local audiences, painting a picture of the bygone times and universal trials that shaped the Old Fox and the young fox.
