Taiwan author turned-chief Giddens tells a kid meets-young lady story in light of his semi-self-portraying novel in this film industry hit in his nation of origin.
Hong Kong Boy meets young lady at secondary school. They grow up, float separated and meet once more. Such are the rudimentary and immortal fixings with which Taiwan writer turned-executive Giddens throws together the larky retro transitioning sugary treat You Are the Apple of My Eye. In light of Giddens’ semi-self-portraying novel The Girl We Chased Together in Those Years (same as the Chinese title), which is as of now a success among Chinese online perusers, its exchange to screen has no hint of abstract heaviness and overflows with straightforward boyish silliness. The film’s radiance lies in the way it passes on the experience of youth and first love with untethered vitality and in an entirely individual, peculiar voice.
