Au Revoir Taipei is simply a balanced, fun, light-hearted movie that you should share with someone. Make sure that you both can live with reading the subtitles (unless you know the language). One can nitpick at any plot holes, or whether something like this could ever happen in real life. But throw all the suspicions and unnecessary skepticism out before you watch. It's simple fun with the premise that love can happen if one isn't blinded by what's around. Fun can happen if you immerse yourself into the cinema world of Taipei... and you feel as though you're truly a visitor. I hungered for street cart dumplings, myself, at the introduction of one character who can't get enough of them.

There was very little, if any, CGI involved. No explosions or gratuitous violence, either. No one really wanted to hurt anyone else, and one character apologized when he actually did strike another a little too hard. The story line was not at all thick. Just a neat yarn about a guy in love, who's heart is misplaced. Yet the tale becomes intertwined as he gets involved with others who have their own ambitions, and through them, you understand that the main characters are in different stages of love. The result goes farther than anyone bargained, and all parties have to adjust to how each other reacts. A number of the characters were more interested in watching Asian soap operas on TV, and they don't realize that they're missing out of one with people they know!

Not many have gravitated to Au Revoir, Taipei (at this writing, it has less than 1,000 votes), but if you like international cinema, find this film, a date that likes the same kind of movies, and share it with a bag of fresh-popped.
