Product description

Product Description

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

Review

'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
