南方小羊牧場 | When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep | 2012 | Directed by Hou Chi-jan
really just looks like your everyday romance comedy film with the boy-meets-girl-falls-in-love scenario. However, in a world we might consider quite the opposite of romantic — stressful, suffocating cram schools–at Nanyang Street.
The love story is subtle, simple, and sweet.
The film is likely to resonate with a Taiwanese audience; one that is moved by the deeper discussion of diminished love and abandoned lovers. Which is why this film was a super hit and very success. And the chemistry between the two leads is really matched and natural–enough to explains why people are crying and loving this film so much.
