The biggest winner at 2020’s Golden Horse Awards, this rom-com zeroes in on the protagonist’s perception of time. Perpetually out-pacing those around her, Hsiao-chi rushes through songs when singing in her choir, jumps in the pool first, and works with staggering efficiency as she serves customers in her post office job to the point that regular Tai’s way of playing rock-paper-scissors is so off that she loses her temper with him every time. As fast as she may be moving through life and close to approaching her thirties, her romantic life is achingly slow. Valentine’s Day looms and Hsiao-chi longs for some romance and to her delight, she meets Wenson on the way home from work. Their attraction to one another is instant and mutual so they waste no time making plans to go out on Valentine’s Day. Hsiao-chi excitedly anticipates her date but when she wakes up the next morning, she discovers that Valentine’s Day somehow never happened.

Director Chen Yu-hsun

Chen Yu-hsun made his directorial debut, TROPICAL FISH, in 1994, winning such critical acclaim that the film has become a rare classic comedy in Taiwan. It won Best Original Screenplay at the 32nd Golden Horse Awards and established Chen’s unique signature comic style. Chen also demonstrates his talent for comedy in advertising and is known for a large number of popular adverts in Taiwan. In 2013, he returned to film and made ZONE PRO SITE, a comedy which not only grossed a massive 300 million Taiwan dollars at the box-office but set a long-lasting trend of gourmet food that boosted the local tourism. In 2017, his comedy blockbuster THE VILLAGE OF NO RETURN, which stars Shu Qi, Joseph Chang, Tony Yang, Wang Qianyuan and Lin Mei-hsiu, was a phenomenal success in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.
