Movie Details

James Chia-ming Liu directed this Taiwanese drama about 30-year-old reporter Jade (Rachel Chang) who struggles to make her way in a male-dominated world. After landing an important assignment to cover an arson wave in the city, she tracks the arsonist with the help of informant Kenny (Chiao-the Yin) but finds little cooperation from the police captain (Jackson Lou) heading the investigation. Jade supports her novelist wannabe boyfriend (Leon Dai), even though her parents would prefer to see her enter into an accepted, conventional marriage. Sparks fly once Jade discovers that her informant is the arsonist she seeks. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
