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 🙂

Xiao Jin is a 20 year old delinquent high schooler who gets a call from his grandparents and returns to the old family spa hotel with his friends, Lu Qun and Little Princess, only to find out that the hotel is haunted.

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.

Happy Valentines, my lovely readers! Would like to share some quotes from one of the most beautiful drama I have watched. (And no, it’s not a BL even though the cover photo seems misleading.)
