Good Men, Good Women (Hao nan hao nu) (Taiwan, Japan, 1995)

Directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien. This film consists of three intermingling stories: a film within a film as well as the past and present as linked by an actress in present-day Taipei. The film in which she plays is about a couple who return to mainland China to participate in the anti-Japanese movement in the 1940s and are arrested as Communists when they return to Taiwan. Images of the film-in-progress contrast with images from the actress' own past, when she was a party girl involved with a gangster. 108 min. Credits and other information from the Internet Movie Database
