All these innocent people!
11 April 2001 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

This comedy is unbelievable sweet. It describes an employed worker kidnapped a child in Taipei City, who is going to join the Great Exam for high school. So this worker and his family have to help this child read books, and also negotiate with Taipei in the same time. It talks about child's fantasies, a deserted sea village, the education system in Taiwan, the media, and all the innocent people. There are a sad and dark side just obvious, but it tastes sweet still.
