One of Hou’s earliest commercial and critical successes, DUST IN THE WIND is the story of Wan and Huen, a young couple living in a small mining town in Taiwan. Tired of the demands of school and discontented with the limits of country life, the two quit school and move to Taipei, where they work menial jobs for little money. The monotony of their lives is broken when Wan is drafted into the army -- a fateful turn that alters their lives irrevocably. Filled with grace, beauty, and bittersweet humor, the film is an engaging exploration of love, innocence, and the harsh realities of modern life.
