YesAsia Editorial Description

Critically acclaimed Taiwan director Chang Tso Chi (When Love Comes) takes audiences on a relaxing summer trip in A Time in Quchi. The low-key drama follows a teenager's unforgettable summer trip to his grandfather's home in the Taiwan countryside while his parents finalize their divorce in Taipei. Initially reluctant to adapt to his new life, the boy eventually opens up to his new surroundings, including his grandfather and the children in the local school. While the film deals with heavy themes, Chang constantly keeps his audience at the length of an objective spectator observing the boy's change. The result is a quietly poetic coming-of-age film about the loss of innocence, friendship and family.

July 30, 2014

A summer at grandpa's
With A Time in Quchi, Taiwan director Chang Tso Chi has found his youngest and least emotive protagonist to tell his simplest and most moving story yet about growing up. Chang has often addressed family problems and coming-of-age themes in his works, but his latest leaves behind the narrative strife, complicated characters and bleak arthouse elements in favor of a gentle, bittersweet childhood pastoral closer in tone and style to the How Are You, Dad? anthology than his other feature films.

The Quchi in the title refers to a village outside Taipei where a disgruntled city boy and his energetic little sister are sent to stay with their grandfather. The parents want them out of their hair for the time being while they figure out their divorce. Armed with his mobile tablet and apathetic exasperation, Bao (Yang Liang Yu) is less than enthused about moving to the backwaters where he must attend a small school and constantly deal with his sister. Though he never quite breaks from his reluctant, reticent shell, Bao soon makes friends and warms to his rural surroundings and his grandfather (Guan Guan), who carries around a stone with a face drawn on it as a proxy for his late wife.

Bao's days unfold in slice-of-life manner, and there are many moments when one can't help feeling wistfully that this is what childhood should be. The kids climb treehouses, play sports, explore nature, put on school plays in handicraft costumes and generally roam around freely in a tight-knit, culturally diverse community. Yet, tough realities always linger in the background with absent parents, impoverished neighbors, destructive typhoons and problems that come and go as suddenly as typhoons. When tragedy strikes the community in A Time in Quchi, it's without warning or reasoning, and also without the expected emotional outbursts and catharsis befitting of cinematic tragedy. Bao quietly experiences what adults already know: tragedies happen in life that will change you, but life keeps going nonetheless.

While at first A Time in Quchi seems to be a contrasting portrait of rural and urban values, a children's parable about a bratty city kid learning the ropes and wonders of countryside life, the film gradually shows itself to be a bittersweet look at transience through the experiences of one too young to fully grasp its significance. The camera offers mostly an observational vantage as Bao calmly watches the happenings around him and grows up more than he realizes over one summer. The episodic structure, with its focus on certain details but omission of other key events, falls into place like selective childhood memories.

At its best, A Time in Quchi recalls Hou Hsiao Hsien's A Summer at Grandpa's and that is no small praise.
