第36個故事 / Di 36 Ge Gu Shi

Taipei Exchange


2010 Taiwanese movie about sisters with opposite personalities, and neither of them have their mother's acerbic nature, who decide to open a 'Starbucks' type place.

The elder sister has brains and loves to bake, so she assumes the hot items on the menu will include her pastries and the coffee - making her wealthy.

The younger sister is no-nonsense and carefree, but when it comes to business, she takes things serious and sets out to promote the new cafe, hoping to meet a lot of interesting people.

What starts out as a typical business venture turns into something entirely unique and that has ZERO to do with making a profit, the silence is golden at times, the characters are totally believable, and there is even a little romance thrown in the mix.

I really enjoyed this '...out of the way' and un-ordinary story, and I think you will, too.
