Wei Te-Sheng, 2017 | 110 minutes

“A raft of Taiwanese pop stars step in front of the camera for the country’s answer to La La Land, from director Wei Te-Sheng. Evidently, there is a lonely whale out there in the ocean somewhere whose song can be heard at 52 hertz. Similarly, some lonely souls in contemporary Taipei sing at a frequency they hope will connect them to the love of their lives in the fluffy romantic confection 52Hz, I Love You, the latest from budding Taiwanese superstar director Wei Te-Sheng. Wei made his way to the international stage when his musically inclined romance, Cape No. 7, became Taiwan’s all-time box-office champ in 2008 to that time (besting the likes of Titanic, The Dark Knight and The Return of the King), and then followed up with the ambitious, five-hour Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale, a historical epic of… indigenous resistance.” Elizabeth Kerr (Hollywood Reporter)

Presented with English subtitles.
