life... a series of very emotional events
20 February 2011 | by vince4953529See all my reviews

When Love Comes is one of the more popular Taiwanese movies that came out in 2010. The plot deals with teenage pregnancy, conflicts between cultures and generation gaps, and changes within oneself etc.

When Love Comes is a very straightforward film, yet the messages underneath were actually very complex and very profound. The film confronted traditional and conservative Taiwanese values that clashes with the emerging foreign Western culture; in the meantime the generation gap that causes so many conflicts, and how the traditional Taiwanese culture expressing the idea of "love" that is so subtle and so clandestine.

Very realistic dialogs here, when I was watching this I could picture my family members and friends speaking like them; I chuckled and teared up at times. Very emotional and very real; the lives of a Taiwanese family.
