Format: DVD
En 1993, la Palme d’or du Festival de Cannes était décernée à la Leçon de piano de Jane Campion et aussi à Adieu ma concubine, le film chinois de Chen Kaige. Au palmarès figurait également Le maître des marionnettes, film taiwanais de Hou Hsiao-Hsien, qui se voyait décerner un plus modeste prix du Jury (ex-aequo avec Raining Stones, de Ken Loach). Avec le recul (et malgré le cliché « le jury s’est trompé », tout cinéphile se croyant à même de déterminer quelle la « vraie » hiérarchie des valeurs bien mieux que n’importe quelle association de professionnels), les choses sont pour moi toujours plus claires : si Adieu ma concubine reste une fresque tout à fait estimable, l’œuvre marquante était bien le film sans doute plus exigeant de Hou Hsiao-Hsien, un des plus grands maîtres du cinéma contemporain.

On peut penser que le propre d’une vie humaine, c’est la possibilité qu’a celui qui la vit de la raconterAfter Virtue. Et que tout récit est récit dans un cadre, enchâssé dans d’autres récits. Dans le film, l’histoire de Li Tian Lu, maître respecté dans l’art des marionnettes, est la sienne propre, et celle de l’île de Taiwan et du monde chinois dont elle est indissociable.

HASH(0x9991160c) étoiles sur 5 A long awaited disappointment 12 octobre 2001
Par H. T. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
THE PUPPETMASTER is probably the most accessible film in Hou Hsiao-Hsien's repertoire. A stunningly beautiful film based on the first 37 years of Li Tien-Lu's life in Japanese occupied Taiwan, the sophistication in the structure, cinematography, sound, and the interesting use of symbolism is hard to parallel. When I saw this film for the first time in NYC earlier this year, I was absolutely awed by the genuinely recreated atmosphere of an era that is simultaneously close and remote to me. Days, weeks, and even months after viewing, I found myself discovering more and more quality and meaning in the movie. I am glad I caught the last show of the week-long Hou Hsia-Hsien Festival at The Screening Room, because the DVD is just not the same. The full-screen cropping and the poor color rendition diminished the quality tremendously. It hurts to see a piece of great art being butchered like this. Imagine someone brought you a bad photocopy of 66% area of Van Gogh's Starry Night and said "You haven't seen this great painting, right? Here is a copy for you to enjoy." Winstar's effort to bring Hou's films to us is absolutely admirable, but unfortunately the effort is largely wasted. This comment is not meant to discourage Winstar from pursuing future projects. We just like to see a fine film being presented nicely, like FLOWERS FROM SHANGHAI.

HASH(0x99911660) étoiles sur 5 Great movie, bad format 27 septembre 2001
Par wabrit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It's wonderful to see Hou Hsiao-hsien's films available on DVD at last, given how difficult it is too see them in theaters, and this is a fascinating and rewarding film. But FoxLorber have in their wisdom decided to present it in fullscreen only which is a big, bad mistake because (1) With DVD you'd think they'd at least offer the choice of fullscreen vs. letterbox, and (2) Isn't it likely that most people who would bother to buy this DVD would want to see the film as originally intended by the director? Very disappointing and I will stick to my PAL VHS widescreen version of this movie instead.

HASH(0x99911a98) étoiles sur 5 Hou's one of the most unknown great directors 22 septembre 2001
Par Jeremy Heilman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
...Hou's "The Puppetmaster" is actually a period drama that has no special effects in it at all. It deals with the life of a puppetmaster (no, not John Malkovich)in Taiwan in the late 19th century. The film integrates documentary interviews with its real life subject and fictional recreations of moments in his life. I'm not intimately familiar with the history of Taiwan, but this film makes this man's life parallel it. Most of the film takes place during Taiwan's occupation by Japan, and the film shows the way that the Taiwanese people were forced to give up a great deal of their culture (making the oral histories that the puppetmaster tells that much more valuable.)
Hou's style in this film uses a mostly static camera. He allows us to see the rhythm of Taiwanese life as it actually was. We get to see several demonstrations of the puppetmaster's talents, and we get to see "behind the scenes" as he gets his job and learns the trade. The narrator is displaced from his family by a result of his choice in career (since he needs to live with his mentor) and the film has an overall sense of both personal and national loss. It's not a film that has a great deal of action, and the average shot's length can be measured in minutes instead of seconds, so the 2 1/2 hour running time may be tough for some to swallow. Nonetheless, there are several stunning shots and an overall impact that you feel at the end of the film that make it more than worthwhile.

This is a wonderful film. I first saw it in a theatre, then bought it in VHS, and now finally I have it on DVD. Thanks for quick service.

HASH(0x99911e10) étoiles sur 5 Worth watching only for Li Tianlu 10 novembre 2002
Par Scott Andrew Hutchins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was profoundly disappointed and have no clue why Hou Hsiao-Hsien is so acclaimed. This film suggested a filmmaker competent enough to make good establishing shots, but little competent enough to do anything else. Li Tienlu was fascinating, and I would have rather had a steady shot of him talking the entire film rather than what Hou gives us. His characters wander in and out of the shots and without Li it would take a lot of cognition to assemble what's going on on his pretty canvases. Maybe he should start making films like Bill Viola. Whatever Village Voice reporter called him "the world's greatest narrative filmmaker" ought to have been fired--he's only good at pretty pictures. The only reason he gets respect is because of his choice of subject matter, not his competence in dealing with it. Another quote on the box referred to the film as "pure cinema," obviously having no concept of what the term means, since there is nothing cinematic in his choices whatsoever. Minimal editing, minimal camera movement, average-quality acting. Long takes in whcih nothing much happens. I guess it makes sense that it was released by a company that didn't bother to subtitle some of the conversations, or the opening credits. I honestly think Li Tianlu is the only reason to watch it.
I'm not inclined to sit through other films by this so-called "master." This filmmaker has no technique. There's more to making a film than choosing historically important subject matter. It's a shame Li died without a better version of his story filmed. While it doesn't help that the film, shot at approximately 1.66, often cuts characters out of the picture while talking while one can see an edge of them. Hou has characters wander out of the frame entirely, as one can tell by the sound. He does so many shots where everything that's going on is hidden, and there doesn't appear to be a reason why. He just does. It's Ed Wood with a pictorial sense and social importance. Hardly a master filmmaker. Watch some Godard or Kurosawa instead.
