Synopsis

At the end of the 1960s, high-school sweethearts Wan and Huen leave their little mining town in search of greater opportunities in Taipei, where the vicissitudes of life take their toll on the relationship.

Our take

Hou Hsiao-hsien closes his triumphant coming-of-age trilogy with the underrated Dust in the Wind, a sublime story of first love set in ’70s Taiwan. With increasing formal precision, Hou masterfully explores the tension between tradition and transition, rural life and an urbanized Taipei.
