Director Wang Toon is a key figure in new Taiwanese comedy. In his famous historical trilogy, of which STRAW MAN is the first film, he presents a surreal and absurd universe populated by bizarre characters. A commercial hit, despite its radical narrative experimentation and underlying political subject matter.
