Four Moods consisted of four costume drama sections on folklore. “Joy” by PAI Ching-Jui, features a stylized guard of ghosts that keep a watchful eye on the movements of reliquary thieves. “Anger” by King HU, reveals the disturbing fate of certain innkeepers who are less than honest with their customers. “Sadness” by LI Hsing follows the return home of a man whose family has been massacred. “Happiness” by LI Han-Hsiang, a water spirit gives up the opportunity to find a possible scapegoat and his kindness is rewarded by God.
Originally Four Moods suffered from serious color fading and had a magenta tint, along with scratch problems. It was first restored via color correction using a duplicate film copy, and later entrusted to L'Immagine Ritrovata Film and Restoration Laboratory in Bologna, Italy, for its 2K digital restoration. The movie was invited to be shown at the Locarno International Film Festival and has been lauded by filmmakers and the media worldwide.
