    On Happiness Road

    The personal story of an ordinary girl against the background of recent Taiwanese history.
    The parallelism is often too schematic, sometimes too easily allegoric (the main character was born on the same day of Chiang Kai-shek's death...), but this is in fact a general trend in contemporary Taiwanese cinema. Not for nothing the main character is voiced by Gwei Lun-Mei, the led actress of "Boyfriend/Girlfriend".
    Despite all, the character's homesickness is moving and feels authentic, and the melancholic account of her childhood belongs to the best tradition of the Taiwanese "school days" films.

    Does anybody know which are the books by Derrida and Foucault that quickly appear in the prison cell at the beginning of the film ?

    I cannot think of any other "landscape" film on an industrial town and its inhabitants, that is as fair, precise and touching as this one. Each one of the individual portraits in the film is a masterpiece. So many things to learn from a 15 minutes film !
