Ulasan Kritikus

As his educated family faces poverty and disease as refugees, he yields to reckless, liberating impulses. Hou’s teeming yet oblique long takes serve to conceal action as well as reveal it; his images suggest a struggle to discern the particulars of a past that holds him in its grasp.

Though a project of recollection and recreation, A Time to Live and a Time to Die is, as its title suggests, as much about life and resilience as about what’s gone and regretted. Even those scenes of adolescent stupidity witness a full-chested vivacity in Hsiao, as well as an increased stirring of maturity.

At last, one is left with the feeling of what it’s like to stand in their family’s house years later, awash in so many years of memories, and realise that those moments and the people who inhabited them, whether alive or dead, are gone forever, save in one’s memory… The fact remains that for me, this movie was then, and is now, not just cinema as living memory, but memory as living cinema. It is my hope that it will live for you too.
