I caught this in a dub with bad sound and picture quality but its lively charm drove through. Taiwan has a nice line in the cinema of childhood. It also has an interesting line in gay-themed cinema, the best example of this I've seen being the sweet and gentle Blue Gate Crossing. Turns out the director of this film wrote the novel on which that one is based.

This is a new start of boy-actor movies in Taiwan.

This movie has both excellent story and box office.

The 2 main boy actors are also amazing.
