Taiwanese auteur Hou Hsiao-hsien (The Assassin, Three Times, Flight of the Red Balloon) followed up his highly acclaimed Coming of Age trilogy of films with Daughter of the Nile, a rich and poignant drama about a young woman struggling to support her family amidst the violent and neon-soaked milieu of 1980 s Taipei.
Lin (Lin Hsiao-yang) works as a waitress in a fried chicken restaurant, attends night school and pines after her brother s friend, local gigolo Ah-sang (Fan Yang). Increasingly constrained by the casual brutality of the world around her, Lin finds escape imagining herself as the titular Daughter of the Nile, a character from her favourite manga series.
Based on the personal experiences of screenwriter, Chu T ien-wen (Millennium Mambo; Goodbye South, Goodbye; City of Sadness) Daughter of the Nile is a profoundly moving observation of marginalised youth. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film from a new 4K restoration, available for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD in a new Dual-Format edition.
DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL FEATURES:
- New 4K restoration
- Uncompressed PCM soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Optional English subtitles
- A new interview with Asian cinema expert Tony Rayns
- Theatrical Trailer
- PLUS: A booklet featuring new and archival writing
'Daughter of the Nile evokes the alienated mood of the early features by France's Jean-Luc Godard, while Mr. Hou's use of the camera suggests that he is an appreciative student of Japan's Yasujiro Ozu, the poet laureate of graceful resignation--New York Times
"Hou Hsiao-hsien has the slickness that gives Daughter of the Nile the most East-West crossover appeal--Washington Post
"the sheer eloquence of Hou's mellow visual style makes the film a lot more life-enhancing than most--Time Out
