Feng gui lai de ren (Hou Hsiao-hsien)

The Boys from Fengkuei

Feng gui lai de ren | Hou Hsiao-hsien

Three young boys leave their small fishing village to find work in the city. Drawing on childhood reminiscences, this is a bittersweet meditation on the dashed hopes of youth; the film that the director considers the true beginning of his cinematic style.
