Synopsis
The Taiwanese new wave—a film movement whose earthiness and restrained realism
have had a lasting impact on world cinema—began modestly with this 1982 omnibus,
which contains four episodes set in different decades. Though neither the long takes
nor the unconventional narrative structures that would become the new wave’s
stylistic innovations are present here, it is remarkable how well-developed the
movement’s major themes were at the outset: rural life, loneliness, and childhood are
all explored in the first two episodes, directed by Tao Te-chen and a then-unknown Edward Yang, while Ko Yi-cheng and Chang Yi’s broadly comic third and fourth
episodes tackle urban life and the perils of young adulthood. 

台湾“新电影”的开山之作。四位导演拍摄的四段故事(“小龙头”、“指望”、“跳蛙 ”、“报上名来”)构成了童年(小学)、少年(中学)、青年(大学)、成年(社 会)四个人生时期(阶段)。 每个阶段都有相应的梦幻世界的快乐和现实世界的烦恼,只是随着年岁增长,两 者比例会有变。童年因某个好伙伴的离去而忧伤的小朋友(“小龙头”),成人结 婚后的烦恼,可能会是因钥匙丢在房里只能穿着短裤在外面晃动(“报上名来 ”)。而青春期时被帅气强壮的大学生房客吸引了目光的女孩(“指望” ),进了 大学未尝不会变成另一种模样(“跳蛙”)——人生充满多种可能,阶段的人生也没 有好坏之分,只过就好。
