 A City of Sadness
Clearly the events of this time require some rudimentary background knowledge, and fortunately a summary is given at the beginning of the English-language version of the film; the key event, a massacre known as the “February 28 Incident”, is referred to in the film only by a sudden invasion of the hospital by wounded victims.
Incidentally, the scenes when he and the girl (played by Xin Shufen) are clearly
However, those audiences were disappointed to discover that this massacre was neither portrayed nor even directly mentioned, only elliptically hinted at by the scene in the hospital, and the Taiwanese public continued to prefer Jackie Chan to Hou Hsiao-Hsien.

The fiction genres which lent themselves most readily to these "messages" were domestic melodramas (aimed primarily at the female audience) and war movies (aimed primarily at the male audience).
He relates the aesthetic to both his own perception of time (the realization that information packed into one fixed frame can be read as evidence of past incidents and episodes not shown) and to strategies in traditional Chinese painting (the "empty" landscape) and theatre (the symbolic gesture standing for larger realities).
The Rubicon was finally crossed in Hou Hsiao-Hsien "A City of Sadness" (Beiqing Chengshi, 1989), which not only broke the silence surrounding the "February 28 Incident" - the KMT massacre of Taiwanese protestors in the streets of Taipei in 1947 - but also faithfully recreated the political debates between Taiwanese intellectuals of the mid-1940s.
