YesAsia Editorial Description

During the emergence of Taiwan New Cinema, the state-run Central Motion Pictures played a significant role in not only fostering directors of the movement, but the development of Taiwanese cinema in general. Under its new management, the revamped Central Pictures Corporation has digitally remastered six classic films from the 80s and the 90s, producing brand-new digital prints that guarantee to overcome the test of time. After Dust in the Wind, four more of these films are arriving in high-definition on Blu-ray for fans to see these films the best way they have ever looked before.

A shooting in the heart of Taipei sends several characters on a collision course in Edward Yang's ensemble drama The Terrorizers, which is influenced by the works of Michelangelo Antonioni. A researcher sells out a co-worker for a promotion, but it comes at the price of neglecting the troubles of his novelist wife. The girlfriend of the shooter manages to escape police custody, but her mother keeps her imprisoned at home, where she finds other ways to cause trouble. Meanwhile, a wandering photographer who captures the shooting moves into the apartment and becomes infatuated with the escaped girl.

This edition includes the film on both Blu-ray and DVD. The bonus DVD also comes with interviews about the late Edward Yang.

★ 榮獲1986年金馬獎最佳劇情片
★ 亞太影展最佳編劇獎

  在一個清晨的團捕行動中,警官老顧率領武裝警察突破一個賊窩,逮捕了槍擊要犯老歪和同夥的歹徒大順等人,唯一跳窗逃走的混血女孩淑安被路過的男孩小強送去醫院,腿骨折斷了。

  淑安回 家後被母親關在家中,她開始很無聊的打電話開玩笑,其中有一通打給了一個叫周郁芬的女人,她假冒是周郁芬丈夫在外面的女友,懷了孕,要周郁芬出來談判這件事,深深刺激了周郁芬。

  周郁芬嫁給李立中已經七年了,在嫁給李立中以前,她是一個能幹的職業婦女,為了生孩子,把工作辭了。結果孩子沒生成,周郁芬日子變得無聊,開始寫作。寫作對周郁芬而言又是一項挑戰,而她就一直陷在寫作的困境中掙扎著。

  李立中是一個安份守己的人,在一家醫院的檢驗室工作,憑著他的努力,他非常滿足於現在的狀況,沒有太大野心。醫院發生了一點事,使得李立中有機會升上組長,他為此而感到欣慰。

  周郁芬過去的主管沈維彬找到周郁芬,希望她能復出工作,周郁芬便和丈夫商量要復出的事,因為她對寫作也產生了排斥,逐漸失去了信心。

  這通神秘的電話促使周郁芬決心離家獨居,重新思考自己的未來,而沈維彬的出現也給了她重新開始自己事業的決定,於是她暫時離開了李立中。

  淑安又從家中蹺出來,經歷了一些煎熬,遇到了當初救過她的小強,兩人有了很短暫而甜蜜的愛情,到淑安見到當初被逮捕的大順出獄,才又離開小強,回到大順的身邊,繼續她的流浪生活。

  周郁芬的行為使李立中非常苦惱,便找到他童年的玩伴,現在幹警官的老顧,要他出面替他想法子。

  郁芬的小說終於得了獎,也因此而更有名,也突破了她在寫作方面的困境,可是她內心的掙扎並未因此而結束。

  立中知道郁芬的離去只是因為那通電話,於是他設法要找到打電話的人,經過一連串的追查,終於找到了淑安。立中在一次酒後,立中把老頺的手槍偷了,去殺郁芬及她的主管…沈維彬。

  故事講到這裡才發現,這一切都只是郁芬得獎小說內的情節,不是真實的事件,而一切都安好如初,什麼也沒發生。

Great Edward Yang film Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
In the following I hope to write a review of Edward Yang’s ‘Terrorizer’ that does justice to its presentation of the twin themes of interconnectedness and disconnectedness, which move through the work like the forces of Yin and Yang.

Superficially, the movie deals with three couples in states of loose adherence. The characters, and the unstable relationships between them, are altered through tangential, almost incidental interactions among themselves.

Firstly, there is a photographer, evidently the son of a wealthy family, and his girlfriend, who he deserts for most of the film to follow his fascination with a rather unlikable Eurasian woman (White Chick) who he initially photographs fleeing from the police with a male accomplice. This fascination is the reason for the photographer’s break with his girlfriend. He goes on to rent the apartment she was escaping from, for use as a dark room. White Chick will later link up with a boyfriend to perpetrate a series of sex-scams, forming the second rather unstable ‘couple’ of the film, joined by the common pursuit of easy money rather than romantic attachment. The third ill-starred pair is a married couple, a doctor (Li-li Chong) and an authoress (Chou Yufen). The doctor has been waiting for a promotion and appears frustrated in its delay. His wife, a novelist, feels that her world as a housewife is growing smaller and smaller. How can she possibly write under such circumstances, she asks. A budding affair with her ex-colleague is further undermining the marriage.

This complicated tangle of trajectories is portrayed in the typically cool, disconnected, Taiwanese style, with naturalistic sound only, and no music except that which is played on radios etc. The manner in which the stories are presented and connected parallels their content, for there is no consistent point-of-view presented that could link us to any one character, and the editing tosses us from one situation to another, leaving it to the viewer to make the connections between the scenes, and in turn, the characters themselves. I suspect that this manner of presentation was itself designed to convey certain realities of life in Taipei, a rough mixture of fortuitous coincidence and disconnectedness, a situation which the technology such as phones and cameras, designed to make life better, only serve to compound further.

This is a film that I found enjoyable to ‘assemble’, and which rewarded concentrated viewing, even while avoiding answering many of the questions it raised. I suspect that further viewings may only raise other questions rather than bring me closer to answers. ‘Terrorizers’ is very much an art film, and very much a Taiwanese film. I would recommended it most to those who already profess an interest in this combination, such as lovers of Taiwanese New Wave films generally. Those who like Antonioni’s ‘Blow Up’ may also find some points of interest, as well as several interesting parallels. In sum: a mature work from an original and talented ‘auteur’.
