    Au Revoir Taipei is a lighthearted romance that manages to avoid sickly sweet chiches, or at least makes them easy to swallow. More than a simple love story, the film has a deliberate sense of place that serves as a backdrop to characters that feel out of place.

    A beautiful rendezvous of casual romance, and Amber's smile and the melody is the best.

    Its synopsis looks to be something but turns out to be loose & out of control.

    Taiwanese homage to Diva. As good as anything the great French directors have done.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by this endearingly quirky comedy. It may seem slow initially, but I suspect this was intentional because the focus at first is on the characters - and it isn't long before their charm shines through. Wannabe gangsters, dodgy cops and retail employees alike show their idiosyncracies and desires. Set in a colourfully lit Taipei nightscape of bustling markets, seedy backstreets and parks populated with dance classes, it does well at capturing the feel of the city (to my tourist eyes, I was only there a few days). The music was a big part of the charm for me too.

    A nice Asian funny movie. Not "funny" ha ha, but funny in the sense that you will spend a nice time at the cinema watching a tale of modern Asia described with a good sense of humour.
