Description

Among the most praised and sought-after titles in all contemporary film, this singular masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema, directed by EDWARD YANG (Yi Yi), finally comes to Blu-ray. Set in the early sixties in Taiwan, A Brighter Summer Day is based on the true story of a crime that rocked the nation. A film of both sprawling scope and tender intimacy, this novelistic, patiently observed epic centres on the gradual, inexorable fall of a young teenager (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’s CHEN CHANG, in his first role) from innocence to juvenile delinquency, and is set against a simmering backdrop of restless youth, rock and roll, and political turmoil.

Special Features:

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • New audio commentary featuring critic Tony Rayns
  • New interview with actor Chen Chang
  • Our Time, Our Story, a 117-minute documentary from 2002 about the New Taiwan Cinema movement, featuring interviews with Yang and filmmakers Hou Hsiao-hsien and Tsai Ming-liang, among others
  • Videotaped performance of director Edward Yang’s 1992 play Likely Consequence
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Godfrey Cheshire and a 1991 director’s statement by Yang
