Movie Info

Gao and his friends are the happiest kids in the city of Galilee. Living on the rooftops of this bustling metropolis, sometimes life can be tough - but they still churn out songs all day, and dance under the stars at night. But when Gao meets his dream girl, a billboard beauty named Sian, fate takes him on a wild ride through romance, friendship, and gang rivalry, all told through enchanting melodies and stunning dance numbers.

Critic Reviews for The Rooftop

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

  • The candy-colored musical from Taiwanese heartthrob Jay Chou is two-thirds delightful.

    Jul 18, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Rooftop" is frenzied, funny and knowing, drenched in lavish, often surreal, imagery.

    Jul 18, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Rooftop" is a restless boy-fights-for-girl fantasia, too stylistically bulbous a misfire to allow for easy enjoyment as either a demented throwback or a genre hybrid.

    Jul 18, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Chou, who also wrote and directed, has a good eye for visuals, but when it comes to his screenplay, he could have used a lot more originality.
