This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: For younger critics and audiences, Taiwanese cinema enjoys a special status, comparable with that of Italian neorealism and the French New Wave for earlier generations, a cinema that was and is introducing an innovative sensibility and fresh perspective. Hou Hsiao-hsien is the most important Taiwanese filmmaker working today, and his sensuous, richly nuanced films reflect everything that is vigorous and genuine in contemporary film culture. By combining multiple forms of tradition with a uniquely cinematic approach to space and time, Hou has created a body of work that, through its stylistic originality and historical gravity, opens up new possibilities for the medium.
