    Correct!

    Don't put it in your pocket. It's your lucky quarter.

    Here is the next challenge:

    The frame quality is not that great, as the film is currently a bit "obscure".

    Here are some hints:
    1) it's part of an informal trilogy
    2) it depicted an event that was heavily censored prior to its release
    3) it is often cited as the mangus opus work of the director

    I don't recognize the images at all - but the mood suggests to me that it's one of Hsiao-Hsien Hou's films. Obviously a wag.

    The film is A City of Sadness directed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien.



    The film take place in the late 1940s in Taiwan, and follow an immigrant family from Shanghai who is settling in Taiwan following the end of WW2. The slow pace of the film give space for the plot and the camera to develop, drawing you into the dynamic of the film, where the family has to deal with the mafia and political persecution, February 28 incident. There is a certain irony to the film, where it depicted the decay of a family alongside the creation of a new country. The film is also noted for using the Hokkien language, which was previously neglected as a "primitive dialect". Despite receiving critical acclaim such as wining the Golden Lion, to my knowledge there isn't a HD restoration of the film, which is disappointing. Highly recommended.

    The Puppetmaster (1993) and Good Men and Good Women (1995). The Taiwan Trilogy focused on Taiwanese society after WW2. Unlike other trilogies such as The Godfather, each film's plot are independent from each other, but are connected through their social critique and theme.
