Film description

In a way Boys refers to All the Corners of the World - in both films we can see children trying to cope with dramas brought about by their families. A teenager terrorises a primary school pupil - forcing him to pay money, threatening him and bullying him. The kid is unable to talk to anyone older, too scared of his oppressor. But Tsai doesn't create a black and white image with one perfect character and another one absolutely corrupt. The evil is not an element of human nature, it results from negligence, lack of communication with family, lack of understanding.

The director consistently uses the style he chose for his previous TV productions - observation, a modest and simple form. It is worth mentioning that Boys marked the beginning of Tsai Ming-Liang's cooperation with Lee Kang-sheng.
