  • A Summer at Grandpa’s

    1984. Taiwan. Directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien. Screenplay by Chu Tien-wen. With Guo Yen Zheng, C. Chien Li, Edward Yang. When their mother falls gravely ill, Tung-tung and his younger sister, Pi-yun, are bundled out of Taipei to the countryside, where their grandfather runs the local clinic. The film is an affectionate recollection of childhood but also punctuated with startling incidents. Hou pulls off a stylistic coup, deepening an otherwise bright chronicle with the underlying tension of impending danger. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 100 min.
