Critic Reviews for A Brighter Summer Day
You won't relish the thought of spending four hours with Si'r, but A Brighter Summer Day will leave you wanting even more.
Yang's methods bring a melancholy tenderness to his recollections. He films intricately staged action in long takes of a rueful, contemplative reserve.
One of those movies that, by slow accretion of detail and bold dramatic vision, disclose the structure and feeling of an entire world.
The measured pace may be off-putting, but stay with it -- the accumulated wealth of detail invests the unexpected final scenes with enormous, shocking power.
A powerful statement from Yang's generation about what it means to be Taiwanese, superior even to his recent masterpiece Yi Yi.
Audience Reviews for A Brighter Summer Day
I realize the big picture in the backdrop plus its significance in Taiwan Cinema (history). It's simultaneously a vast jumble however.
Wow. This is fantastic! And utterly heartbreaking. If you don't mind sitting around for 4 hours reading subtitles, then this is a must see! Let's hope Criterion can work out the rights for a DVD release soon.
One of the most amazing films I've seen in a long time. Life changing.
