Synopsis

This is a moving story about the outcasts in a slum supporting each other. There are a grandma and her grandson, a sick woman and her daughter, Xiao Zhu. Two positive characters are Santai, who picks up recyclable waste, and a tricycle peddler, Afa, who are hard working and have compassion and senses of justice. And there are also a prostitute and her boyfriend, who sucks on her blood. The film reflects the social reality in 1960s. This film ends Lee’s Taiwan dialect film period and heralded his first successfulperiod as a film director. Due to the success of Our Neighbors, Lee was hired by Central Motion Picture Corporation (CMPC) and started the trends of healthy realist films of CMPC.

这是一幅同是天涯论落人相儒以沫的群像图:大杂院中,有徐老太太与孙子、病妇阿嫂与女儿小珠相依为命,有同情心与正义感而辛勤营生的拾荒胖子三泰与三轮车夫阿发,不过,也有风尘女与其不务正业的老相好之间的色利纠葛---这部充分反映现实的作品,结束了李行的台语片时期,开始他导演生涯中的第一个高峰。由于《街》片成绩出色,李行应聘为中央电影公司的导演,并开启了日后中影公司的健康写实风潮。
