Love is in the Air: Taiwan Romance Classics
Taiyupian (Taiwanese-Language Films) dominated the Taiwan cinema market for more than two decades between the 50s and 80s, creating over 1000 films. Though only one-tenth of the films survived, they paint a vivid picture of the contemporary social environment, contributing to grasping the full picture of Taiyupian development. One of the most popular genres of Taiyupian is romance. Though every romantic Taiyupian is never without a pair of typical lovers suffering from trials of gender stereotypes or moral boundaries, the diversity of Taiyupian allows every encounter to be distinctively one of a kind.
"Love is in the Air: Taiwan Romance Classics" selects seven Taiyupian classics, inviting all to travel back in time with us, to experience the bitter and sweetness of a Taiwanese love affair.
