Don't be fooled by this amateur film...It's not a professional stuff
17 May 2015 | by (Tainan, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

This is a film that shows a night and day in the life of one particular Taiwanese girl and her friends.

As some of commercial reviewers have noted, there is a wonderful immersion into the moments of the characters in this film, with each act seemingly shown in real time. I compare this aspect of it to things like Elephant (2003) or Bir zamanlar Anadolu'da (2011) (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia), both superior films that made this approach work.

That is why I am disappointed that this film wasn't actually any good. There's a worthwhile film here, if only they'd filmed it. It's actually an amateur work with governmental propaganda.

At the end of the film, reasonable audiences reasonably expect an ending. There is no end to this film. The shirouto amateur filmmakers simply ran out of ... what? script? cash? patience? ideas? ... and simply started the end credits. If this was Lord of the Rings, I'd know to expect the next third of the story in the sequel. But it's not.

The end is one of those moments in film when you realize the writer-director is telling audiences to f--- off, just to see who tolerates it. From the looks of it, quite a few did.

In conclusion, this is not a good one, it's just made by amateur with strong and unfair political parties' support.

My rating is 1 out of 10.
