Feng gui lai de ren (All the Youthful Days) Reviews
December 6, 2007
The greatest coming of age film ever. So incredibly evocative and resonant. Even though this is usually considered Hou's first mature work, a lot of his later contemporary films such as Millennium Mambo are clearly rooted in this.

This movie just resonated highly with me. The minimalist approach and attention to detail was top notch and I liked the whole idea of growing up and moving on to different (though not always better) things in life. It's about moving forward, even when time seems to be stuck in a rut. A very simple and understated film.

A great early work of Hou Hsiao-Hsien and another fantastic coming of age movie. A great film.
