YesAsia Editorial Description

Winner of Best Film, Director, and Original Screenplay at the 46th Golden Horse Awards, No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti is based on a true story that gripped the Taiwan headlines in 2003. A man holding his daughter stood at the edge of a pedestrian bridge, using his life as a final lobby to keep his family intact. Many TV stations broadcast the desperate standoff live, but the day after that the man and the little girl had disappeared from the news cycle, their story forgotten before it was even told.

Returning to the director's chair six years after Twenty Something Taipei, actor-turned-director Leon Dai sensitively recounts the circumstances that brought them to that bridge in a brilliant black-and-white docudrama that is as simple as it is stunning. Li Wu Hsiung (played by the film's co-writer and producer Chen Wen Pin) and his young daughter Mei (Chao Yo Hsuan) squat in a rundown shack at a Kaohsiung port. Though poor, the two have each other and that's enough. With Mei reaching school age, Li tries to enroll her for school, but the process reveals that he doesn't have the necessary paperwork to prove he is Mei's legal guardian. When the authorities threaten to take Mei away, Li fights back with everything he's got, but everywhere he goes it's more bureaucracy and red tape, and a mounting desperation that drives him to the edge.

義大利……全世界觀眾感動落淚

台灣真實社會事件 一則父親與女兒最令人動容的親情告白

2009年最值得推薦給你與家人的一部電影

如果能再重來一次,我不會讓任何人把你帶走

在高雄港的碼頭邊,無照的潛水伕父親,與七歲大的女兒相依為命,靜靜生活著。儘管物質上沒有奢華的享受,作息簡簡單單,兩個人的心裡卻是充實而溫暖。直到女兒屆臨入學年紀,沒有監護權的父親為了替女兒報戶口南北來回奔波,警察、社會局介入,眼見衝突一觸即發,父親為了要和女兒共同生活下去,不惜作出大膽行徑…。由台灣真實社會事件改編,在困頓的時代裡,為了最愛的人,要如何不放棄生命的希望與努力,2009年最真情催淚的台灣電影!

台灣各界人士 感動推薦 佳評如潮

「看了這樣一個電影,真的心情蠻沉重的,包括這次處理八八水災的災民,有些也有類似情況,都需要我們拿出同理心來,設身處地,將心比心。」──總統馬英九觀後感

長期來我關注弱勢、勞動人權及生命尊嚴的議題,這是我的理念也是最基本的生命堅持。在【不能沒有你】裡,我看到了這種純粹的生命價值觀,更被故事中的單純與堅持感動、落淚。我強力推薦您走進戲院接受這種感動,這是今年最值得您觀看的一部重要電影!── 高雄市市長 陳菊

帶著妻女一塊兒看這部電影,真是一場不斷交雜著憐惜、憤怒、無奈的震撼洗禮,種種情緒,隨著劇情的發展,或如暴雨強襲;或如細雨微潤,到了極處,甚至不得不對自己的幸福無缺,有著莫名的難為情。── 前立委 段宜康

誠心推薦「不能沒有你」這部電影,不為別的,只是衷心的期盼,您也能懂得我們的感動 ~ 更去珍惜身邊那個「不能沒有」的對象。 ── 台灣婦女團體全國聯合會

很久,沒這麼令人感動的國片了。透過小人物的父女情深,以及與體制的纏鬥,我們才知道台灣有多文明。 ── 資深媒體人 蔡詩萍

去掉色彩的喧擾,我看到純淨的愛之光華。 你不能沒有什麼?我要說,今年暑假,你真的不能沒有這部電影!── 熱血 明星教師 劉中薇

素樸而驚人之作,它為社會底層人們安靜而執著地控訴,直搗觀眾的心像碰觸開放的傷口,最後卻給了正為片中悲傷的父女哽咽的我們,開闊溫厚的安慰。 ── 作家 陳雪
看完【不能沒有你】像帶著一個延遲炸彈回家,在你靜下來的時候炸開,且餘震不絕。這個事件絕對和你我有關。 ── 導演 柯一正
樸實的敘事、極簡的手法,導演戴立忍藉由一個再真實不過的事件,成功地橫向鋪展出台灣底層社會裡種種令人無可奈何的殘酷與荒謬。── 影評人 塗翔文
簡潔但風格化的表現讓人拍案叫好,難以克制地動人。絕對是今年台灣電影的最大驚豔。── 影評人 周星星
在純粹的黑白攝影底下,簡潔的敘事軸線繞著一對父女緩慢遊走,在微觀的日常中,對於角色的性情有格外真摯、細膩而深刻的描繪。一段清澈甘甜的親情,以及小人物因著愛別離,而展現出不可抹滅的堅定與生命力,在在令人動容。── 放映週報執行編輯 王玉燕

Professional Review of "No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti (Blu-ray) (2020 Reprint) (Taiwan Version)"

February 19, 2020

Actor-director Leon Dai takes a 180-degree turn from Twenty Something Taipei for the unassuming black-and-white drama No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti. Meaning "cannot live without you", No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti tells the based-on-a-true-story tale of an uneducated man in Kaohsiung who finds himself victim to an impersonal bureaucracy. However, despite that description, this is not really a social drama. The film opens with a television broadcast of the man threatening to jump off a bridge along with a young girl, with the media reporting, the police trying to intervene, and numerous onlookers watching and sometimes commenting cynically. His beef: that life and society have treated him unfairly.

Flash back two months and the same man seems like an altogether different person. Li Wu-Hsiung (Chen Wen-Pin) is an uneducated laborer who works small, sometimes illegal jobs while squatting in an abandoned warehouse on the docks. Living with him is his daughter Mei (Chao Yo-Hsuan), who's similarly uneducated but loves her father nonetheless. Her mother ran off years ago, leaving the father-daughter pair to share a meager, but affectionate existence.

Wu-Hsiung must register their household for Mei to legally to start school, but it turns out that her mother - to whom Wu-Hsiung was never legally married - was really married to another man, meaning they are Mei's legal guardians and not Wu-Hsiung. Urged on by old friend A-Tsai (Lin Chih-Ju), Wu-Hsiung treks to Taipei to see an old classmate who's now a legislator, in hopes of becoming Mei's legal guardian. The legislator offers to help, but refers him to another official in Taipei. He's soon referred back to Kaohsiung, and then to subsequent agencies, with help and hope decreasing with each stop. Fearing that he may lose Mei for good, Wu-Hsiung is driven to desperation, leading to the very event that opens the film.

The audience revisits the scene where Wu-Hsiung threatens to jump to his death along with Mei, but the circumstances surrounding the event have now been fleshed out, and the truths gleamed may not be ones expected. Considerable depth, affection, and understanding have been established by Dai's generous, nonjudgmental direction. Dai has the opportunity to create a film extolling the lower classes and condemning impersonal bureaucracy, but his goal seems simultaneously lesser and greater than those obvious themes. The fault for Wu-Hsiung's plight lies with many, but Dai shows this without overriding the story's most basic emotion: that of a father's fear of losing his daughter.

The film's portrayal of bureaucracy is ultimately more about circumstance and misunderstanding rather than outright critique. The outrage towards impersonal government types is present but fleeting; Dai skillfully portrays the reality of the situations without obvious intent or mawkish emotions, with little overt dialogue or music to guide the audience. Nothing about No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti is showy, from the realistic performances and unobtrusive camerawork to the austere black-and-white cinematography. The power of this story is not in its meaning, but in its emotions and its characters, and Dai never leads the audience astray. There's nary a false note in this simple story.

No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti succeeds in its aims handily, and proves moving and thoughtful without resorting to manipulation or announcement of intent. The film requires some patience; at times, Dai's storytelling may appear too slow, but the film never meanders nor loses focus, and when the final payoff arrives, the emotions are acutely and even gratefully felt. Dai's film is a throwback, offering a straightforward story that can be enjoyed and appreciated without necessarily seeking value and meaning in the director's craft or the writer's script. The film succeeds largely because it lacks pretensions - or perhaps hides them so well that audiences may not discern them. The only noticeable pretension in the film may be its English-language title, which is oddly in Spanish. That's not really a flaw at all.
