Director Chen’s staggering debut feature uses satire to present social imbalance, urban-rural disparities, and credentialism in Taiwan. The eccentric and delightful characters set up with vibrant visual dreamscapes, director Chen successfully transformed himself from TV production into the cinematic world.

陳玉勳的電影長片處女作《熱帶魚》,從一樁綁架案引出一連串看似荒誕不經的事件,以九零年代的台灣為背景,關照升學主義、非法賭博、城鄉差距等社會問題。初試啼聲即在國內外影壇皆有斬獲——盧卡諾影展藍豹獎,以及金馬獎最佳原著劇本獎和女配角獎(文英),也奠定陳玉勳往後『喜劇鬼才』的風格。
