The great Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s latest work, Three Times, is a beautiful and lyrical film, regarded by some critics as the best film shown at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. It features two of Asia’s biggest stars, Shu Qi and Chang Chen. They play different characters in three episodes set in different years and different eras, 1966, 1911 and 2005. The central theme is love and emotion: in this film Hou Hsiao-Hsien is commenting on our different expressions of love in different times.
