    I will drop a hint:
    The title of the movie came from a line in a song by Charles Hart, a American singer, which was adopted by other 1950s-1960s rock and roll singers and artists.

    The film is A Brighter Summer Day directed by Edward Yang.



    A 4 hour portrait of a youngster life in Taiwan during the 1960s, where there was tension between the military and the civil service establishment, political paranoia in the air, unease relationship between the newly arrived Chinese immigrants fleeing from the Communist and the aboriginal residents, a longing for Chinese tradition from the older generations, the youth looking towards America as the future, stain of Japanese colonialism (through the lens shot and the backdrop), the emphasis on education as a social status, and the role of women in society. There are moments of comedy, sorrow, rage, and tragedy throughout the story. For me, I think of the story as being two-sided, the first being a social commentary on life during this period, and the second as a personal look into the family interaction with each other and how a "good" or "average" person can be pressured to silence their conscience by their surrounding. Highly recommended if you have the time to watch.

    Rogerx since you have the closest guess, it should be your turn if you want to play along. If not then someone else can post their own challenge for the rest of us to complete.

    I saw that and don't recall that scene lol. Love Edward Yang's films - I've seen Taipei Story, Terrorizers, and of course Yi Yi. The Elvis Presley connection was cool I thought.

    I also cherish his movies. Yi Yi and a Brighter Summer Day are among my favorite films.

    Judging from the open spot, and no one got mine, I will post the next one. Hopefully this one is more easier:
