 A City of Sadness悲情城市

Today, I will introduce a Chinese film which called A City of Sadness (悲情城市bēi qíng chéng shì). So let us have a brief introduction.

A City of Sadness is a 1989 Taiwanese historical drama film directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien (侯孝贤Hóu Xiàoxián). It tells the story of a family embroiled in the tragic "White Terror" that was wrought on the Taiwanese people by the Kuomintang government (KMT) after their arrival from mainland China in the late 1940s, during which thousands of Taiwanese were rounded up, shot, and/or sent to prison.The film was the first to deal openly with the KMT's authoritarian misdeeds after its 1945 turnover of Taiwan from Japan, and the first to depict the 228 Incident of 1947, in which thousands of people were massacred.

A City of Sadness was the first Chinese-language film to win the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival.This is a very fabulous film.
