The Terroriser

Directed by Edward Yang

This multi-linear narrative is interwoven with numerous characters, including an ambitious research scientist, a bike-gang thug running from the cops, a novelist looking for a painless exit from her marriage, plus the delinquent girl who makes devastating prank calls. In this examination of urban lives and identities Yang ensures that each story creates its own interest, but it is their cumulative effect that will take your breath away.
