Terrorizers (Restored Version)

1986 / 109' / Taiwan / In Mandarin with Chinese and English subtitles / Color

★ 1986 Golden Horse Awards - Best Feature Film

★ 1987 Locarno Film Festival - Silver Leopard

The marriage of Yu-feng and Li-zhong has reached a stalemate. Yu-feng, a writer, faces a creative block, while Li-zhong pins hope on a promotion. A teenage girl's prank calls become the subject of Yu-feng's award-winning novel. As their lives unravel, frustration builds like a gas tank on the verge of explosion. The film constructs multidimensional contexts through precise audiovisual deployment, depicting loneliness, deceit, and violence in modern society. The proliferating plot generates multiple meanings and liberates the freedom of film narration."

Director: Edward Yang

Cast:Cora Miao, Lee Li-chun, Wang An
