You Are the Apple of My Eye








Director - Giddens Ko

Genre - Drama/Romance


Adapted from a popular novel, this movie directed by the author himself was a big box office hit in its home turf. Alas, we do not think that it deserves such warm reception. Crass and juvenile in its presentation, this coming of age story with aspirations in tackling comedy and romance fails at both. The only saving grace here are the 'not so bad at acting', quite likable leads. We were really put off by the constant mention of sex, distasteful sexual innuendos and far too many masturbation scenes. 'American Pie' wasn't all that sophisticated too, but at least it didn't disguise itself as a love story.

2.5 STARS!

It is demeaning to both women and men. Sort of like 'Stand By Me' directed by a serial molester or a pervert. We have no clue why this is a big hit in Taiwan.
