Growing up as a metaphor of Taiwanese social development has been a preoccupying theme of the island's cinematic renaissance, and Taiwanese new-wave director Chen Kun-hou employs it again in this 1983 story of an illegitimate youth, born to impoverishment in the authoritarian 50s, who comes of age during the giddy economic expansion of the 70s. Produced and cowritten by Hou Hsiao-hsien. 100 min.
