Millennium Mambo: Arthouse 101: International New Wave

Experience the dreamlike nostalgia of the next entry in our Arthouse 101: International New Wave series — Hou Hsiao-hsien's 2001 time capsule, Millennium Mambo.

In 2011, A woman named Vicky (Shu Qi) recollects her experiences a decade prior, in which she navigated an emotionally tumultuous love triangle between her DJ boyfriend Hao-Hao (Tuan Chun-hao) and a businessman named Jack (Jack Kao). Aimlessly caught between the temperamental toxicity of Hao-Hao and Jack's criminal ties, Vicky's vulnerability inevitably keeps bringing her back, unable to move forward. It is only through recollection in which she may be able to release herself from the tightening grip of her past.

Nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, Hou Hsiao-hsien injects Millennium Mambo with an endlessly evocative, neon-soaked sensory experience, anchored by the emotional rawness on display from his performers.

The Frida Cinema's Art House 101: International New Wave series has been made possible with generous support from the City of Santa Ana.
