Monga / Báng-kah (2010)

Genre: Drama
Director:Doze Niu
Starring: Ching-Tien Juan, Mark Chao, Ju-Lung Ma
Duration: 140 min.
Rating: 7.1/10

Monga refers to the present day Wanhua district, the oldest district in Taipei.  The film depicts the struggles between the brotherhood of gangs in the district during the 1980s.


Monga from actor-director Doze Niu, is Taiwan's official entry for the 83rd Academy Awards.  A violent film following the story of five teenagers who enter a life of gangs in the 1980's.  Solid acting throughout and very impressive cinematography, however the story lacks originality.
