Goodbye South, Goodbye (simplified Chinese: 南国再见,南国; traditional Chinese: 南國再見,南國; pinyin: Nánguó Zaìjiàn, Nánguó) is a 1996 film directed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien.



Gao (Jack Kao) is riding the train to Pinghsi to set up a 10 day gambling den with his friend Hsi (Hsi Hsiang). He taking his acolyte - Flatty (Lim Giong), and Pletzel (Annie Shizuka Inoh), Flatty's girl friend, who works part time in a night club. Gao's girl friend Ying (Hsu Kuei-Ying), who works in the same night club as Pletzel, doesn't like the people around Gao, finding them dangerous. But Gao has already made a deal with Hsi to invest in a nightclub in Shanghai. Ying doesn't want him to go. She wants him to stay in Taiwan to open a restaurant. A succession of get-rich-quick schemes leads them only to the brink of disaster. In the course of the film the unsavory alliance between the underworld and the political elite emerges.


Goodbye South, Goodbye was entered into the 1996 Cannes Film Festival,[1] but lost to Secrets & Lies. It was chosen along with The Bridges of Madison County and Carlito's Way as the best film of the 1990s by Cahiers du cinéma.
