A universal tale of wayward adolescence is woven into complex context. Taiwan, a liberated Japanese colony with a large native Chinese population, was ruled from 1949 on by newly arrived Chinese nationalists backed by the American military. “A Brighter Summer Day” depicts but does not directly explicate the political situation. “Rather than working its way through a neatly predigested story line, it plunges the audience into a vast social fresco,” the British critic Tony Rayns, one of the movie’s first Western admirers, wrote in 1993.
这是一个讲述叛逆的青春期的普遍故事,被放在错综复杂的背景之中。台湾是被解放的日本殖民地,有不少原住中国居民,1949年后,新来的中国国民党在美军支持下统治了台湾。《牯岭街少年杀人事件》描绘了当时的政治环境,但又并不给出直接的解读。1993年,该片在西方最早的仰慕者之一,英国评论家托尼·雷恩(Tony Rayns)写道:“影片没有按照一条清晰简化的故事线发展,而是带领观众跳入一幅巨大的社会风情图卷之中。”
