About Story

It happened in 1950s Taiwan, during the period known as the “White Terror,” when an anti-Communist campaign swept up the island in  hysteria. One autumn afternoon, two sisters returned from school to find their once-happy home ransacked by military police and their parents arrested and accused of being Communist spies. The film follows a quartet of characters - the dashing air force officer father, his beautiful devoted wife, a mysterious scar-faced bureaucrat and a general’s glamorous wife. Their lives and loves intertwine until everything erupts in a rhapsody. Amid life in that turbulent era, friendship, passion, high-minded ideals and dignity are all put on trial in the courtroom of human desire.


故事

兩個小姐妹,在一個深秋的日子放學回家後,發現父母雙雙失蹤,原來是以通諜及懷疑共產黨的罪名,被警備司令部逮捕。

由於這件事故,引發出小姐妹那英偉的父親、漂亮的母親、她們非常不喜歡的叔叔以及她們非常仰慕的年輕將軍夫人,四個人之間不尋常的關係。

生活在那個動蕩的年代,親情、友情、愛情、人生的理想、人性的尊嚴,都會得到適當的考驗......

這是第一部以五十年代,台灣白色恐怖真實故事改編的電影,在國際影壇引起很大的迴響,尤以最後一段男主角「回魂」,虛實之間,引起很大的爭議。
