Poetic modern fantasy, about love, lost and found
18 March 2021 | by actress_twSee all my reviews

Structure of the story and light-hearted yet profound music play significant roles in this "quiet" romantic comedy that shines, which is a rare case even in Chinese-language cinema. (Although most of the dialogue is done in Mandarin, most of the humor lies not verbally, or precisely speaking, also lies not on Taiwanese the local dialect.) Comedic timing was almost pure and perfect for me until I was surprised by my tears when I saw a man showing up onto the night bus in that semi-philosophical sequence towards the end of the movie. All of a sudden, I realized it's way more than a comedy. Wow!

"Love yourself well, because someone out there has been in love with you." As this shows up on screen like a last missing piece for this poetic modern fantasy about love and lost and found... I feel happily relieved, and of course, heart-warmed. It feels like watching Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain years ago.
