Movie Info

After spending much of the decade making films about Taiwan's complex and troubled history, Hou Hsiao Hsien turns his attention to its money-obsessed present with this gangster drama. Tattooed mobster, Kao (Jack Kao), and his quick-tempered, aptly named protégé, Flathead (Lim Giong), along with their girlfriends, Ying (Hsu Kuei-ying) and Pretzel (Annie Shizuka Inoh), are desperately trying to make it big. Their master plan is open a disco in Shanghai, but that scheme seems less and less likely

Hou brilliantly evokes the isolation of a generation hopelessly cut off from its past.

What's most impressive about Goodbye South Goodbye is the way in which the film seems so completely disenchanted with the antics of its protagonists.

Another slow moving but electrically penetrating film by one of the world's best directors, Hou Hsiao-hsien.
