Hip, humorous and melodramatic.
14 March 2002 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Charming story of a young couple trying to make it in the big city on their own terms. However big cities like Taipei have a tendency to eat their young. Hip, humorous and melodramatic. The acting is top notch and we get a bonus one song concert from pop star, lead Sinje.
