Humble Beginnings
22 June 2015 | by (.) – See all my reviews

Before Hou became known as one of the greatest living filmmakers, he paid his dues making a string of romantic musical star-vehicles for local Taiwanese pop-stars.

In this, his debut feature, a young girl decides, before entering into an arranged marriage to a guy she's never met, to visit her aunt in the countryside. There she meets a prospector and they fall in love, you can more or less guess the rest. What's remarkable about Cute Girl is that this generic rom-com may not feel like a Hou Hsiao-hsien film, it already looks like one. Not only does it contrasts urban life with a bucolic view of countryside, a theme that will reappear in many of his later works, he already favours long take tableaux over the more common continuity editing you would expect to see in a film like this. There are some intricately staged shots of groups of people moving through the frame that could fit right into Hou's later, more artistic films.

It's no masterpiece, it never was intended to be, but there are some laughs, some nice moments and it's light and breezy like the many pop-songs on the soundtrack.
