Taipei Story

青梅竹馬 (Taipei Story). Directed by Edward Yang, who was part of that early Taiwanese New Wave thing. I’ve got a lot of patience for day-to-day slice-of-life movies, but found this a little too fragmented. I also think it suffered from a crummy translation (or, the translation was accurate and the writing was just that awkward). The scenes set at night seemed much better than the daytime ones, but I’m not sure why.
