(aka 'Ch'ing shaonien na cha' or Teenage Norcha')

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/direct-chair/tsai.htm
Taiwan 1992

 

  Tsai's first film is of interest for its roots in his eventual styling - a more conventional drama than his future films, we are shown an ambitious student who leaves his studies to seek revenge on the hoodlums who wrecked his father's taxi cab. We are also privy to a couple of petty teenage thieves (Tse and Ping) living in an overcrowded apartment building with a constantly gurgling floor drain. Residing in their complex is a girl (Kuei) they are currently seeking attention from, yet as always with Tsai, communication is the barrier. Told in a series of Taipei-based tableaux's, Tsia's eventual themes are already obvious and will reoccur in his future films in a more concrete and polished form.

Comments:

Although anamorphic, this release is not progressive and 'combing' can be seen to varying degrees in all horizontal pans. It certainly doesn't look stellar but to be fair it is still better than my VHS copy. Lighting is very poor, most likely a function of limited production. Colors are bleeding (see title). For those keen on Tsai, this ends up being a must-own DVD, not so much for the quality of the image but for the limited alternative of the film on DVD. We thank Wellspring for releasing this on DVD, but always wish their standards were somewhat higher.
