★1989 金馬獎最佳男配角

1949 年,兩個難兄難弟分別假冒別人的身分跟隨國民黨軍隊撤退到臺灣。他們打算在這個種滿香蕉的地方好好過日子,卻不幸遇上白色恐怖。一個人因為冒充的對象剛好被檢舉為共匪,而讓他飽受牢獄之災;另一個人冒充知識分子,在求職的路上遇到各種啼笑皆非的窘境。
四十年過去,國民黨開放大陸探親。被假冒身分的知識份的孩子,在不知情中,由假爸爸撫養長大,成年後的孩子走訪家鄉,找到了爺爺,打電話回臺灣,要「爸爸」和爺爺通電話。這下才驚爆,原來在戰爭亂世當中,為了活下去,很多人頂替了別人的身分......
本單元的每一部電影均敘述大時代下的個體悲劇,本片雖也講了沉重事件,卻難得以喜劇形式去呈現,因此非常值得推薦給觀眾重溫經典。

Before the end of the civil war in 1949, Mainlanders Menshuan and his friend join the Kuomintang army in order to get to Taiwan where they believe they will lead a better life. When they are suspected of being Communist spies, they desert the army and try their best to survive in the harsh reality of what they once believed to be the “Banana Paradise”. Meanwhile, Manshuan saves the life of a widow with whom he later marries and helps raise her son as his own. Taking the identity of his wife’s deceased former husband, Manshuan can now find himself a job in spite of his illiteracy. Things are going well with the family until 1987, when travel restriction is lifted between China and Taiwan, allowing Taiwanese citizens to visit relatives in China, Manshuan’s son goes over to China and finds his paternal grandfather.
