A Brighter Summer Day ( ?嶺街少年殺人事件 G? l?ng ji? shaonian sh?ren shijian, "Brighter Summer Day murders") is a 1991 Taiwanese drama film directed by Edward Yang. The film is an extraordinarily large project for a Chinese-language film, not only for its duration of almost four hours, but also for its involvement of more than 100 amateur actors in different roles. The title is derived from the lyrics of Elvis Presley's "Are You Lonesome Tonight?".
Paul's office's fax machine often receives random auction info. Under great encouragement from his friends, he went to inquire at the auction address and discovered that the site is a new residence which has just been decorated, but that the owner, Fran, has put a tag on every furniture and plans to auction them all off. Coincidentally, Paul's office has been rented for over two years, and it's empty, without anything much in it. He knew that the furniture of Fran's was bought together with her fiance Robert for their new home. Under the lure of the romance behind the furniture, he bought every piece of Fran's furniture. -Translated by ethidda
