The marginal has been an important agency in Chang Tso Chi's films for the representation of the reality of contemporary Taiwan. Standing out from other films that focus on social criticism and realism, Chang forms one of his signature styles by blurring the line between reality and inner aspiration and creates narrative endings with lightness and imagination. Through analyzing Darkness and Light (1999) and The Best of Times (2001) with Walter Benjamin's concepts of image and redemption, this essay suggests the imaginative endings do not only stand as Chang's signature aesthetic style, they also provide a narrative function that offers redemption for the characters desperately suffering in marginal societies, thus completing the symbolic meaning of these films' themes.
