YesAsia Editorial Description

A rare big-budget historical epic from Taiwan, the 2008 drama 1895 in Formosa tells a stirring tale of love in the time of war in 1895 Taiwan. Directed by Hung Chih Yu (Pure Accidents), 1895 in Formosa is Taiwan's first feature film shot primarily in the Hakka dialect and focusing on the Hakka experience. Espousing on one man's love for his homeland and one woman's love for her husband, the film features location shooting at key scenic spots throughout the island, beautifully recreating the atmosphere and aesthetic of late 19th-century Taiwan.

Kidnapped by bandits, the beautiful Hsien Mei (Cheryl Yang, Twenty Something Taipei, The Hospital) manages to return home safely, only to face the whispers and accusations of those who doubt her chastity. Ignoring the rumors, scholar Tang Hsing (Wen Shang Hao) marries Hsien Mei, steadfast in his love and trust. The two are soon separated by the onset of war, however, as Tang Hsing joins the Hakka militia to fight the Japanese.

「甲午戰爭」清廷戰敗,同意將台灣割讓給日本。1895年初夏,日本近衛軍團自台灣東北角登陸,準備接收台灣。台灣士紳紛紛召募義勇軍積極備戰…。

美麗的黃賢妹(楊謹華 飾)曾遭土匪擄去,後來雖平安歸來,卻沒人相信她的清白。秀才吳湯興(溫昇豪 飾)不顧流言依約娶了她,信任與愛令她銘感在心。為了抗日,吳湯興投筆從戎,組成了客家義民軍。當他率領客家男丁為保家衛國而奮戰時,他的妻子黃賢妹則與全村女眷共同染衣耕作,作為他的強力後盾。

吳湯興起初屢戰屢捷,後來卻在新竹阻擋日軍失利,並於苗栗陷入苦戰。由於兵力懸殊,加上武器糧餉所限,他最後僅能以游擊戰術,拖延日軍南下的速度。原本並肩作戰的清官眼見大勢已去,紛紛逃回中國,使他處境更如雪上加霜…。
