Additional Information

Among the most praised and sought-after titles in all contemporary film, this singular masterpiece of Taiwanese cinema, directed by Edward Yang (Yi Yi), finally comes to home video in the United States. Set in the early sixties in Taiwan, A Brighter Summer Day is based on the true story of a crime that rocked the nation. A film of both sprawling scope and tender intimacy, this novelistic, patiently observed epic centers on the gradual, inexorable fall of a young teenager (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon s Chen Chang, in his first role) from innocence to juvenile delinquency, and is set against a simmering backdrop of restless youth, rock and roll, and political turmoil.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

25 years ago, I was 15 (as the same age of Si'r). I went to see this movie in a brighter summer day. Since then, I became a fan of Edward Yang. 25 years later, thanks for Criterion Collection's terrific restoration, I can watch it on my TV, with the best quality that beyond my expectation. With this edition, I have found many details that I've never noticed before on the silver screen, not to mention the poor VCD edition.

Thank Edward Yang for creating this fantastic film, and thank Criterion Collection for reviving it again.
Gorgeous night time and daylight cinematography. Great storytelling. Long film that rewards your patience. Immaculate restoration. One of the greatest films of Taiwanese cinema.
Outstanding film, outstanding restoration. A worthy tribute to Edward Yang from the Criterion Collection.
