Goodbye South, Goodbye
(NANGUO ZAIJIAN, NANGUO)

by HOU Hsiao-Hsien

Taiwan, an island in the South Seas. For both mainland China andJapan that ruled the island for 50 years, Taiwan is the south, hot and humid. But today, in the 90s, what shape does Taiwan find itself in ? Kao is riding the mini train to Ping Chi to set up a 10- day gambling den with his friend Hsi. Kao is taking Flat Head, his acolyte, and Pretzel, Flat Head’s girlfriend, who works part time in a night club. Kao’s girlfriend Ying, who works in the same night club as Pretzel, doesn’t like the people around Kao, finding them dangerous. But Kao 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 Taiwain to open a restaurant.
