"August 27th Directed by: Hsaio-Hsien Hou Watching a tribute to another director is probably not the best way to start watching a director's work. I don't even know if the things he did were atypical for him, I did notice some the framing and of course the use of trains as tributes to Yasujiro Ozu, and I guess that's all you really need. I'm glad he didn't go overboard."

"My introduction to Hsiao-hsien Hou - this is apparently his homage to Yasujiro Ozu, and while I'm not particularly familiar with either director (yet), it's easy to spot the similarities. A very calming experience, I was feeling some anxiety earlier today (school stress), but Café Lumière managed to blow them right out of the window. This is precisely the type of film that will divide its audience right in the half. Some will find the long takes (with seemingly nothing happening) devoid of mea"
