Man in Love movie review: Taiwanese romance starring Roy Chiu, Hsu Wei-ning is heartfelt but its premise is questionable

  • Man in Love, a Taiwanese remake of a Korean film, employs the troubling trope that the love of a good woman can redeem the most flawed of characters
  • The film is schizophrenic in its genre switching from lighthearted romcom to weepy melodrama, but succeeds in capturing some genuinely heartfelt moments
