Ms Lim Ka Min loved the coming- of-age Taiwanese movie Our Times so much,
she watched it a second time – alone.
“I don’t want any one to judge me when I cry. I cried harder when I watched it again,” says the 21-year-old student.
Repeat moviegoers like her have contributed to making Our Times the highest-grossing Taiwanese movie of all time in Singapore, with more than $3.5 million earned at the box office. The high school romance is television producer Frankie Chen’s directorial debut.
Still screening at cinemas here, it surpasses the previous record of close to $3 million set by another Taiwanese youth romance You Are The Apple Of My Eye (2011).
It is also the second-highest grossing Chinese film this year, behind Jack Neo’s movie Ah Boys To Men 3: Frogmen ($7.63 million). [FULL STORY]
