–Seasoned television director Fung Kai’s (馮凱) Din Tao: Leader of the Parade (陣頭) is edifying for those not familiar with dintao, a type of traditional temple performance troupe. For everyone else, the film is an overly long formulaic exercise in banality.
–Performer Allen Ko (柯有倫) plays A-tai, a young man who dreams about becoming a rocker in the US. He quits school in Taipei and returns to his Taichung hometown before following his heart’s desire.
A-tai has never been on good terms with his father, Uncle Da (Chen Po-cheng, better know as A-hsi, 阿西), who runs a dintao troupe. The father and son never make an effort to understand one another, and quarrel each time they meet.
But Uncle Da has other things to worry about. While his company struggles to make ends meet, long-standing rival Wu Cheng (Liao Chun, 廖峻) and his troupe meet with success and popularity.
–Irked by Wu’s arrogance, A-tai decides to take the troupe’s demoralized members on a countrywide walk in search of inspiration to revamp the traditional folk art form.
