The shift from social portrait to domestic soap opera practically negates the democratic message of the first section, but Yang's stylish filmmaking is impressive throughout.

Though Mr. Yang paints a colorful portrait of a country grappling with new freedoms, his real triumph is a moving and complex love triangle that will configure and reconfigure into adulthood.

Most vivid in its early years, as we see the students bursting with energy and promise.

Complicated but compelling, the film also struggles a bit with Yang's erratic direction, but that flaw mirrors the indecisiveness of Liam himself, who is played engagingly by Joseph Chang.

A celebration of (and cautionary tale about) personal and political freedom.

Ya-che Yang's prodigious command of his material suggests an intuitive understanding of film's ability to evoke sensations beyond sight and sound.

While attempting to chart the evolving parameters of a romantic triangle over two decades of Taiwan's tumultuous societal upheavals, Yang fails to adequately explore either the personal or the political aspects of his drama.

In wanting to make a film that is both about sweeping societal change and small-scale personal relationships, Yang has missed on both counts.

"Girlfriend Boyfriend" starts as a comedy, but quickly turns into a soap opera with too many subplots.

Taiwanese nationalism provides a weird backdrop to a moody romantic triangle that stretches out over three decades.
