.: Cape no. 7 :.

A film by Wei Te-Sheng.

"Everybody’s heart harbors an undelivered love letter …"

The highest-grossing film ever in Taiwanese box-office history. Director Wei, a former assistant director under the legendary Edward Yang, has exquisitely portrays a hidden love from the 1940’s Japanese-occupied Taiwan. Unable to disclose his affection for a Taiwanese lady prior to returning to Japan, a Japanese teacher reveals his love in seven unforgettably passionate letters. Although these letters weren’t mailed until some 70 years later, they ignite a series of events and become a catalyst of another inter-cultural love affair.

As much as I hate to admit that I’ll most probably cry my heart out on this one, there are some things that I don’t mind crying for. I have high hopes for Cape No. 7. Furthermore, I am resolute on getting the DVD and OST, which includes Heidenröslein, the poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Get it released already! Gya~ !
