All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (5)

  • The real heartbreak comes when writer and director Ya-Che Yang envisions them as compromised adults still clinging to their adolescent fears and desires.

    Oct 27, 2012 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The shift from social portrait to domestic soap opera practically negates the democratic message of the first section, but Yang's stylish filmmaking is impressive throughout.

    Aug 9, 2012 | Full Review…
  • While attempting to chart the evolving parameters of a romantic triangle over two decades of Taiwan's tumultuous societal upheavals, Yang fails to adequately explore either the personal or the political aspects of his drama.

  • In wanting to make a film that is both about sweeping societal change and small-scale personal relationships, Yang has missed on both counts.

    Aug 3, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "Girlfriend Boyfriend" starts as a comedy, but quickly turns into a soap opera with too many subplots.

    Aug 3, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Though Mr. Yang paints a colorful portrait of a country grappling with new freedoms, his real triumph is a moving and complex love triangle that will configure and reconfigure into adulthood.
