Best Taiwanese Movie Ever!
4 June 2011 | by ninomiya0521See all my reviews

As a Taiwanese in a foreign country, this movie reminds me of my home town more than I think. With all the joys and tears, this movie is just so TAIWAN! Not exaggerated, this movie brings the way we live, we feel, we care, and we earn for life. You might not be a Taiwanese somehow, but you'll just get to know more about this island,Taiwan. Not just the goods, the movie also showed the bads and darkness in Taiwan's society. However, movies always lead to a happy ending and that's why we wish for too. If you love Taiwan, you're so gonna watch this movie. If you don't, you'll just change your opinion after this! Enjoy this comedy with laughter and tear!
