Rétro Taiwan

Le temps retrouvé dans le cinéma sinophone contemporain


Corrado Neri

Author of preface

Stéphane Corcuff

For the cinema sinophone, the past is a subject of future ...

What is retro? Pastiche and multiple references to the past, certainly; But beyond, is there more than a fashion? Is this an asserted process of expressing claims? Is the look back a desire to curb the flight forward, cultivating the pleasure of time regained, which helps to promote our transition to another age, less worried? Without giving a definitive answer to these multiple questions, Corrado Neri summarizes the major works that study this movement, which is far more complex than the expression of a simple nostalgia, and endeavors to define, on the basis of detailed analyzes of important films, such as Hou Hsiao-hsien, Edward Yang, Tsai Ming-liang and many others.
