《關於本片》

52Hz,汪洋大海中一隻孤單鯨魚的低鳴,傳遞著渴望被聽到的”我愛你”。另一隻期待被愛,卻害怕受到傷害,帶著矛盾心情的貓兩種心境,代表著城市裡兩種類型的單身男女。

繼”海角七號”、”賽德克巴萊”、”Kano”,睽違九年,導演魏德聖再次以音樂愛情電影的形式,詮釋等待知音共鳴時的孤獨,並期待帶給大家幸福、滿足的感覺離開戲院.。

11/10日,讓我們帶著好奇的心情,參加魏導新片北美特映會KC場,和演員與劇組人員共同體驗溫馨甜蜜的情感。

《ABOUT THE FILM》

The movie is a heartfelt musical drama by award-winning Taiwanese film director, Te-Sheng Wei. Wei’s earlier indie film broke box office records in Asia and was nominated for the 84th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film in 2011. Wei’s newest movie, “52 Hz, I Love You”, is not only a unique musical interpretation on the age-old subject of love, it also provides viewers an opportunity to experience some of Taiwan’s iconic music, lifestyle, and culture. We look forward to sharing an enchanting evening with you.
