Let’s Fall In Love
The services of Taiwanese matchmaker Hellen Chen are in high demand, where people struggle to find love and companionship in a society with one of the highest rates of divorce in Asia. Comedic and tragic in turns, Wuna Wu’s realist documentary follows the interactions of several couples as they come to terms with their decision to get married or tackle problems within their marriage. The filmmaker herself becomes a client of Chen’s, who gives Wu advice on how to overcome her own reticence about marriage. In its honest portrayal of the trials and tribulations of modern love, Let’s Fall in Love is a fascinating look at romance in urban Taiwan.
