Set in 1980s Taiwan, this visually stunning, award-winning film captures the era's economic optimism and ambitious dreams, which can easily crumble when the game changes. Winner of four Golden Horse Awards, including Best Director.

Director Hsiao Ya-Chuan returns with another poignant poetic masterpiece exploring the complex of family relationships as well as the society's economic structure. Intricately edited and beautifully written, OLD FOX skilfully weaves together the idyllic nostalgia and tense uncertainties that surrounded a 1980s childhood. 

In 1989, eleven-year-old Liao Jie lived a frugal life with his father, saving every penny for their dreams of buying a house. However, under the volatile Taiwanese economy, their goal slips further and further away, until one fateful day, Liao Jie unexpectedly befriends their cunning landlord, the “Old Fox”. His friendship with the Old Fox allows him to taste the power wealth brings, and as his desperation for his dream grows, Liao Jie must grapple with the reality of his honest life with his poor father, and the deceitful but rewarding ways of an “Old Fox”.


1989年,除了國際政治時局變動之外,股市前景看好,物價也隨之倍漲。在台灣的某個角落,小男孩廖界(白潤音 飾)和父親泰來(劉冠廷 飾)相依為命,卻始終達不到購置新房的夢想,人稱「老狐狸」的房東謝老闆(陳慕義 飾)出現,讓廖界的命運輪盤,開始在財富和善良之間轉動。
