Storyline

On Mother's Day in Taipei, Chen Mo makes a date for dinner with his wife, hoping to bring their estranged relationship back together. While buying a cake on his way home, a car unexpectedly double parks next to his car, preventing his exit. For the entire night, Chen Mo searches the floors of a nearby apartment building for the owner of the illegally parked car, and encounters a succession of strange events and eccentric characters: an old couple living with their precocious granddaughter who have lost their only son, a one-armed barbershop owner cooking fish head soup, a mainland Chinese prostitute trying to escape her pimp's cruel clutches, and a Hong Kong tailor embroiled in debt and captured by underground loan sharks. After many hardships, Chen Mo finally gets his car out of the parking space, and, with new friends riding beside him, advances toward a new horizon in life. Written by Cannes Film Festival

A well planned film that tells stories of the city
13 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is really a quality film that tells different stories in the city of Taipei.

The plot involves tiny stories from various characters, portraiting different angles of life, what is important to each person.

The story ends a little bit awkward though, but it is all because it is not meant to be a typical movie with clear storyline, it is just like peeking at lives of different people.

The acting in this film is excellent, especially the main character Chen Mo, he can take the torch from Tony Leung in the near future as the number 1 actor in Asia. Other characters are well casted, since most of them are quite famous and solid actors for some years in the industry already.

I would definitely recommend this film for more serious and patient audience
