Hai tan de yi tian (1983) AKA That Day, on the Beach


Jia-Li’s husband has disappeared.  A clue at a beach suggests that he was drowned but no body was found.  The film focusses not on the search for the husband, but on the reunion of Jia-Li and her brother’s ex-girlfriend, a successful pianist. The two women share insights on life and memories of growing up, and the struggle they face accepting or defying traditions in their romance and marriage. The film’s deliberation on changes in Taiwanese society and family, its mood of contemplation and reflection, went well beyond the melancholic tone of traditional Taiwanese films about women.
