Cheerful Wind: an unreleased romantic comedy by Hou Hsiao-Hsien restored at Carlotta's

Assistant photographer on a commercial, Xiao Xinhui (Fei Fei Feng) maintains an affair with the director. The young woman is also not insensitive to Gu Jintai, a blind man she has just met. The opportunity of a trip to Europe will perhaps help him to see more clearly…

Produced in 1981, the second feature film by the great Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao-Hsien (The Flowers of Shanghai, Millenium Mambo) explores the tender and complicated relationships between men and women.
