poorly done
4 February 2009 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Pleasant reviews on this movie prompted me to watch it. I had expected an enjoyable heart warming comedy but it didn't turnout this way. I really tried to enjoy it but found myself hitting the fastforward button from impatience. I've watched some excellent Taiwanese movies and this had to be thrown to the other far end. Poor character development (The sub-characters didn't even have their closure), screenplay, very very poor direction and some very bad acting. The story isn't original although the small seaside town setting is nice plus the focus on the indigenous Taiwanese. I felt the director was really trying to hard to convey multiple story lines across which fell completely flat for me. I don't really understand why the tie in with a mysterious letter from Japan. It made the movie so much more disjointed with the poor direction, acting, editing etc. Should have just kept it simple.
