After the success of May 13th, Night of Sorrow (1965), LIN Tuan-Chiu adapted a Japanese film into this gripping detective mystery of love affairs, greed and murder However, LIN was not satisfied with the finished film, so it never received a theatrical release. But its’ complicated relationships in a modern society, and its riveting plot twists, still resonate today. All aspects from the characters, performances, costume and makeup to production design are well-executed, and the elaborate interior sets, expressionistic lighting and smooth jazz soundtrack turn 1960’s Taipei into an exciting, bourgeois metropolis.
