Salute! Sun Yat-Sen Synopsis

Tired of being hounded for his high-school tuition fee, Lefty sets his eyes on a bronze statue of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen (father of Republican China), long abandoned in storage at school. He concocts a scheme and cajoles his classmates to steal and sell the "Country Father" for hard cash.


A frenemy, Sky, who proves himself poorer, attempts to sabotage Lefty by stealing the plan. Two teams, eight boys and one race against each other leads to a riotous and absurd night of boy's fist-fighting.


A hilarious heist caper becomes a rallying cry for disaffected youth in this multilayered comedy from Blue Gate Crossing director Yee Chih-Yen.

Salute! Sun Yat-Sen is a clever coming of age story with a quirky sense of humour. Yee Chin-Yen already is a Taiwanese master in coming of age tales. In his latest film, he takes on a big political figure (Dr. Sun Yat-Sen - father of Republican China) with a comical twist, as the teenagers who put themselves in charge of stealing the statue, only see the financial aspect. It is a refreshing point of view and a meaningful one nevertheless. SALUTE! SUN YAT-SEN is a real shout out for the youth that is definitely worth it.

  • Quite funny and clever comedy about two rival groups of school boys trying to steal an old statue to pay for their school fees. Definitely worth watching... And great masks :)
