Synopsis

Three different stories in three different ways, so the viewer is treated to an unparalleled display of versatility. The three stories are situated in three different periods and each of them is a tragic love story. The first part, A time for love, is set in the 1960s, in Hou's youth. It is a very contained melodrama. The last part, A time for youth, is set in today's Taipei. It shows the city as a hotspot, supported by the calming music of Lim Giong. The middle section, A time for freedom, is set furthest in the past and could be described as the tour de force of the three. It is set at the beginning of the 20th century, during the occupation of Taiwan by Japan. It has the style of a silent film from that period.
