Movie Info

Love and loyalty tears apart a circle of high school friends in this coming of age drama from Taiwan set in the late 1990's. Cheng Hsi-yen (Rhydian Vaughan) is a Big Man on Campus and the star hitter on his school's baseball team, and he's the unofficial but unquestioned leader of his circle of friends. Hsi-yen is dating a pretty girl named Hsiao Yun (Jennifer Chu) who adores him, and has befriended Hsiao Tang (Chang Cheh), a quiet, studious boy who looks up to the slugger. But Hsi-yen's status at the school takes a tumble when he begins seeing another girl on the side; her boyfriend somehow mistakes Tang for Hsi-yen and gives him a serious beating, while Hsi-yen fails to come to his aid. Hsi-yen's failure to stand by his friend and his dalliance with another girl infuriates Yun, and she writes him a letter telling him that they're though. Yun gives the letter to Tang and asks him to deliver it to his former friend; however, Tang is secretly in love with her, and rather than deliver the note he tries to find a way to win her over. A motorcycle crash sends Hsi-yen to the hospital, and the disillusioned students become increasingly bitter when a scandal sweeps through Taiwan's professional baseball leagues. Jiu jiang feng (aka Winds of September) was the first feature film from writer and director Tom Lin. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
