Review: Secrets In The Hot Spring (切小金家的旅館)

I really enjoyed this film a lot as well. I had zero expectations going into the film and it brought me so much laughter. In fact, I watched this in a cinema on a weekend and there were less than ten people in the theatre. I was pretty convinced it would be bad… but I ended up loving it. The key to enjoying this movie is to not take it too seriously and you will find that it does bring you a lot of joy 🙂

Review:

Taiwan seems to be on a roll for “youth films” with films like Boyfriend, GirlfriendYou’re The Apple of My Eye and Our Times that every time I see a “youth movie” from Taiwan I’m almost tempted to lap it up. Of course, I’ve experienced many, MANY disappointments where I cringed at another dumb slapstick classroom humour and shallow characters dangling their legs as while looking out into the far off horizon.
