Every weekend in Shanghai’s famous Peoples’ Park, an overly-ambitious mother puts up a poster advertising her unwed son to potential brides. But, when true love is at stake, sometimes the best-laid plans have a funny way of coming undone.
“The dialogue is charming and it’s there and it’s funny but if you took out all the dialogue I think you pretty much still understand what’s happening. That’s always a good guide in filmmaking and I think that if you can tell a story visually without all the dialogue, it’s much better.”
