Blue Gate Crossing

Directed by Yee Chih-yen

Like SHOW ME LOVE, the charming BLUE GATE CROSSING takes the time-tested teen genre and gives it a twist. Serious, smart girl is best friends with popular, pretty girl. Pretty girl has a crush on the high-school hunk, but she’s too shy so the smart one speaks for her. Hunk thinks the smart one fancies him and pursues her. But no male will ever be her type. This exploration of an irresolvable teen love triangle is achingly well-observed and told from a distinctly Taiwanese perspective.
