This is a movie that will appeal to a younger audience and specifically one that enjoys story lines based around dance and the theme of coming of age. I enjoyed this movie for it's soundtrack and the visuals employed which often make Taiwan look prettier than it can sometimes look on a day to day basis. The lead characters are good though the lead female is radically underwritten and under utilised sometimes leaving the viewer wondering why she is the narrating voice. I found this movie to be uplifting and enjoyable and some of the dancing was spectacular but its possible a hip hop dance enthusiast may find it more mundane. Above all its nice to see a truly Taiwanese movie that has a very Taiwanese touch, especially evident in the role of the almost dialogue-less father. This is not an earth-shatteringly great movie but it is good entertainment which i recommend for a slow Sunday when there are no other big hit movies worth watching.
