In this classic melodrama of conflicting duties and desire, a wife comes home to tell her husband she has run into an old friend, now in need of help. When she moves her into their home with her little boy, the husband is overwhelmed with guilt – the wife’s friend is his former lover, and he fears the son is his. Flashbacks within flashbacks and frames with frames signal the twists and turns of a plot adapted from a Japanese novel and transposed to Taiwan to reveal Lin Tuanqiu’s perhaps surprising theme of female solidarity as the solution to life’s crises. – Chris Berry
