Watched: When Love Comes

A very beautiful and emutional Film, There is not much to say about the plot as this is just a very realistic view of a Taiwanese family and their rebellous 16 years old daughter which gets pregnant and slowly understands her family.

Everything is kept very realistic without getting boring. The score plays a huge roll in that, building the right emotions. The cast is pretty good, be it the daughter itself, her father, both wives (yeah, you didn’t read that wrong) and the mentally handycapped uncle (he was a natural). The directing was very good, there were a few very beautifully shot scenes.

I think this movie is very underrated but that might be just me.
