Ni na bian ji dian by Mingliang Cai( Visual )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hsiao Kang is the only son in an uncommunicative family. When his father dies, he and his mother participate in Buddhist mourning rituals together, but otherwise cope with their profound grief separately and alone, crossing paths only out of routine obligation. Meanwhile, Hsiao Kang returns to his job as a watch vendor on the streets of Taipei. One afternoon, a young woman insists on buying a dual-time watch off his wrist for her trip to Paris, and he eventually relents, despite his superstitious belief that it will bring bad luck to them both. His feelings for the watch, tied to his anguish over his absent father and perhaps a hint of longing for its new owner, quietly compels him to reset every clock in the city to Paris time. Inevitably, despite the seemingly fated, intersecting lives of these three lonely and desperate people, the remedy for their emotional void seems indefinably out of reach. The film itself is poetic, generously compassionate, and achingly bittersweet

Expecting his first child and still struggling to find steady employment, Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud) involves himself in a relationship with a beautiful Japanese woman that threatens to destroy his marriage.

"How do we learn? What do we know? Night after night, not long before dawn, Patricia and Emile meet on a sound stage to discuss learning, discourse, and the pathe to revolution> Scenes of the May '68 student revolts, the Vietnam war, posters, photographs, and cartoons form the backdrops to their words, which themselves are often their subject, as are images, sounds and juxtapositions. Based loosely on Jean Jacques Rousseau's incendiary treatise, "Emile, or on education", Godard's "Le gai savoir" is a montage, a meditation, a reflection on ideas - and how filmmaking is a path."--Container
