En hkmdb únicamente indica la existencia de un director. En cambio la fuente con el archivo de la película indicaba tres directores, uno para cada fragmento:

There are several anthology films at the beginning stage of Taiwan New Cinema. Ah Fu consists of three shorts, having directors from various backgrounds. The leading roles in the three films are all named Ah Fu. The stories are played by different actors and located in Hong Kong, China, and Taipei respectively.

The first segment was directed by MAK Tai-kit with the screenplay written by JHANG Jiou. Ah Fu, a young car mechanic in Hong Kong, often hangs out at karaoke, malls, and nightclubs with friends. They enjoy splendid days of youth; at the same time, families and relationships also bother them. As the date of the handover in 1997 is getting closer, they confront the issues of what to do next after the handover.

The second short was directed by LUO Wei-ming. It tells the story of Ah Fu in China during the Cultural Revolution. Ah Fu is sentenced to reform from labor in remote villages. He often thinks of his fiancée in dreams. Ten years after, he finally receives rehabilitation just to find out that everything has changed during the past years. His family mansion is occupied by groups of people. His fiancée, to keep her head above water, remarries another guy.

The third one was directed by LI Chi-hua. Ah Fu in Taipei is a young entrepreneur aiming to achieve success in the catering industry. The competition in Taipei is fierce and his business does not go well; therefore, his friends no longer invest money in it. The fortune teller says that Ah Fu’s pursuit is out of his league and gives him lots of high-priced advice. The most important thing for Ah Fu to do is get married as soon as possible.
