bitter sweetness
11 August 2012 | by zeleehom-446-841353See all my reviews

You should really go with your Asian friend.

This is the best Taiwanese movie i have ever seen, which talks about love.

The way it presents the story is so romantic, that you will literally fall in love with the movie.

Main actors and actress are so cute, their acting is natural, sentimental, and tear-alluring.

I really hope more and more MADE IN TAIWAN can find its market in the U.S., there are so many people here who appreciates Taiwanese products, especially their amazing movies.

Love it
