Do­mes­tic film ‘Our Times’ takes box of­fice by storm

The China Post - - LOCAL -

High school ro­mance “Our Times” has taken Tai­wan’s box of­fice by storm, be­com­ing the fifth high­est-gross­ing Tai­wanese film ever in the do­mes­tic mar­ket as of Sun­day.

The block­buster film has grossed over NT$400 mil­lion (US$12.25 mil­lion) around Tai­wan since its re­lease on Aug. 13, the film’s dis­trib­u­tor, Hualien Media In­ter­na­tional Co., said Mon­day.

Among lo­cal box of­fice hits, “Our Times” trails only the ro­man­tic com­edy “Cape No. 7” ( NT$ 530 mil­lion); his­tor­i­cal drama epic “War­riors of the Rain­bow: Seediq Bale Part 1” (NT$472 mil­lion); com­edy “David Lo­man” (NT$428 mil­lion); and ro­mance “You Are the Ap­ple of My Eye” (NT$410 mil­lion).

The di­rec­to­rial de­but of Frankie Chen, “Our Times” looks back at the first love of a woman, who met a mis­chievous boy when she was in high school.

The two ini­tially set out to help each other at­tract the peo­ple for whom they have crushes, but they even­tu­ally fall in love.

The film has re­ceived three nom­i­na­tions at this year’s Golden Horse Awards in the cat­e­gories of best lead ac­tress, best new di­rec­tor and best orig­i­nal film song.
