Today, I will introduce a Chinese film which called Goodbye South (南国再见nán guó zài jiàn). So let us have a brief introduction.
Goodbye South, Goodbye is a 1996 film directed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien (侯孝贤Hóu Xiàoxián).
Gao (Jack Kao) is riding the train to Pinghsi (平溪乡Píngxī Xiāng) to set up a 10 day gambling den with his friend Hsi (Hsi Hsiang). He taking his acolyte – Flatty (Lim Giong), and Pletzel (Annie Shizuka Inoh), Flatty’s girl friend, who works part time in a night club. Gao’s girl friend Ying (Hsu Kuei-Ying), who works in the same night club as Pletzel, doesn’t like the people around Gao, finding them dangerous. But Gao has already made a deal with Hsi to invest in a nightclub in Shanghai. Ying doesn’t want him to go. She wants him to stay in Taiwan to open a restaurant. A succession of get-rich-quick schemes leads them only to the brink of disaster. In the course of the film the unsavory alliance between the underworld and the political elite emerges.
This is a very fabulous film.
