九降風之台灣篇 Winds of September


A neatly assembled coming-of-ager set in a provincial Taiwan high school, “Winds of September” is a promising first feature by Cal Arts film grad Tom Lin that only lacks originality and characters to root for. Paced somewhere between a commercial feature and an accessible art movie, the film presents a familiar roundelay of teen bragging, bullying and first love without pushing the envelope much further. Winner of the top prize in the Shanghai fest’s New Asian Talent competition, “Winds” looks set to breeze through fests but not into theatrical beyond Asia.
