Storyline

Based on true events related to the life of Taiwanese piano prodigy Huang Yu-Siang (Siang played by himself), this is a story of inspiration, discovery and love. Born to a rural family in Taiwan unprepared for the birth of a blind son, Siang was a curious and precocious child. Touch and sound was everything to him. With the love of his mother and support of his family, he grew up with no barriers - that is until he had to face the real world as he left his family behind in order to attend university where he had to compete on the same playing field as the sighted students and to find his own way. He soon crossed paths with Jie (Sandrine Pinna), a beautiful but frustrated cold drinks vendor who dreams of being a dancer, but whose struggles against the harsh realities of her life render her helpless. However, when she witnesses Siang's fearless determination and understood his optimism and inner peace, she is inspired and determined to hold on to her dream. Touch of the Light - a story ...

Touch of the Light is Light but it Touches
6 February 2016 | by christian94See all my reviews

This Taiwan treat deals with two protagonists with low self-esteem and limited worlds whose life collide and make the kaleidoscope brighter. Music and dance are their passion and their path to happiness are hampered by handicap, society and family.

Being blind and what it entails is explored, but the film falls rarely into cliché. It rings true, it is simple and has two very likable, real and relatable characters.

The film, editing, acting, directing (and yes music!) are great but never try to be grandiose. Always humble or the right note to employ the music metaphor, this film finds truth, hope and beauty. Even the friendship romance is just right, not forced, cute and light.

See it if you can. At least you can, because blind piano prodigy Huang Yu-Siang who plays himself and compose some of the soundtrack sure wish he had vision. Perhaps he and first feature film director Jung-chi Chang do have vision: artistic vision.
