Daughter Of The Nile Blu-Ray + DVD

Daughter Of The Nile Blu-Ray + DVD
Taiwanese auteur House Hsiao-hsien followed up his highly acclaimed coming-of-age trilogy of films with Daughter of the Nile [Ni luo he nu er], a rich and poignant drama about a young woman struggling to support her family amidst the violent and neon-soaked milieu of 1980's Tapei. Lin [Lin Yang] works as a waitress in a fried chicken restaurant, attends night school and pines after her brother's friend, local gigolo Ah-sang (Fan Yang). Increasingly constrained by the casual brutality of the world around her, Lin finds escape imagining herself as the titular Daughter of the Nile, a character from her favourite manga series. Based on the personal experiences of screenwriter Chu T'ien-wen (Millennium Mambo; Goodbye South, Goodbye; City of Sadness), Daughter of the Nile is a profoundly moving observation of marginalised youth. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film from a new 4K restoration, available for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD in a new Dual Format edition.
