YesAsia Editorial Description

Winner of Best New Performer (for Lee Chien Na) at the 2010 Golden Horse Awards, Taiwan film Juliets has also garnered much love at international film festivals in Tokyo, Pusan, Dubai, Manila, and Panaji. The romance anthology features three standalone short films from three acclaimed directors, who each gives his own take on the Shakespearean character who loses herself in the perplexing thing called love. Telling three stylistically distinct stories about love and loss, the trilogy stars actors who may seem unexpected choices at first glance but give very compelling performances nevertheless.

Juliet's Choice
Director: Hou Chi Jan (One Day)
Cast: Vivian Hsu, Wang Po Chieh
In the 1970s, Taiwan was under the martial law. Crippled printing plant worker Xiu Zhu sees no future and therefore doesn't dare to love, until one day when an earnest university student named Luo Wei comes to the plant asking to print a newspaper criticizing the powers that be. Enamored with him, Xiu Zhu agrees to help him without regard of the consequences...

Two Juliets
Director: Shen Ko Shang (Baseball Boys)
Cast: Lee Chien Na, River Huang
Thirty years ago, Julie fell in love with Xiao Luo despite the animosity between their family clans. They could only see each other in secret at the mental asylum on the hills. When their forbidden romance was discovered, Xiao Luo's family was forced to leave the village. He asked Julie to play crazy and wait for him at the asylum...

Middle-Aged Juliet
Director: Chen Yu Hsun (Tropical Fish)
Cast: Kang Kang, Liang He Chun
Heart-broken for the 28th time, Chu Li Ye decides to end his miserable life on the last day of his thirties. He rides into the mountains on his bike, trying to find a place to kill himself without being a nuisance to anybody. But he ends up wandering into the valley and bumps into a TV filming crew, who recruits him as an extra for their latest commercial...

The 2-Disc Deluxe Edition of Juliets comes with special features including behind-the-scenes, trailer, and stills gallery.

A surprising treat Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
'Juliets' presents three quite different short films, each of which can be said to relate to Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' in very glancing, tangential ways. Each film presents its own striking take on the theme of romance. The first two of the short films are heartfelt and heartbreaking, while the third is wildly comic. And each film ends with a surprising O. Henry-style twist.

'Juliets' is graced with creative storytelling and blessed with fine performances from its terrific cast. Very highly recommended.

Romeo, Romeo...where art our marbles, Romeo? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Juliet's comprises of three short movies by different directors modernistically reflecting the plight of Shakespeare's two tragic lovers Romeo and Juliet; from the 1970s, the 80s and finally to date (2010 when this was released). The triple offerings contrast from sad and sombre' Juliet's Choice' with Vivian Hsu as a crippled print worker sad about her future; a reflective secret lover trysts at a mental home with 'Two Juliet's' to a more S Korean comedy of' Another Juliet' of a heartbroken suicidal man about to turn 40 finding love with another man on a TV film shoot.

Personally I found the more sombre 'Juliet's Choice' the most interesting. For one I used to work in a similarly print shop environment as Xiu Zhu (Vivian Hsu) as a metal letterpress compositor and this brought a strange nostalgia to mind. The story concerning the crippled Xiu Zhu working at a local news print shop confronts a young student Luo Wei (Wang Po Chieh) needing a political critique about the paper printing, but refused by her father the owner. So secretly at after work hours Xiu Zhu sets type and prints the student's political comments for the main reason that she loves Luo Wei. Due to the Power oppression of the Age such social critique of course gets Xiu Zhu into hot water with her father and misunderstandings with student Luo Wei. Amidst the forbidden love a curious decision is made by Xiu Zhu.

Concerning the second and third stories I don't know which could be deemed the most black humoured - the third seems obvious by the comical plot, but although it's a more serious issue afoot the second story 'Two Juliet's' comes across the most dark humoured and ironic. Two lovers banned from seeing each other by strict parents, thus secretly and regularly meeting up at a mental institution where the tragic heroine, due to parental interference, vows and fakes her stay in a mental home until her lover returns - 30 years later (couldn't the nurses see through her scam). Mad it certainly seems and maybe a little madder than tight costumes that our intrepid suicidal hero in film3 as to wear to get to know a film set crew who inadvertently save him from his suicidal tendencies.

Overall this trio of stories relating to Shakespeare's forbidden love work is interesting, bleak with dark humour and of course tragic. The sort of mad tragedy that brings a Gloria and Anthony Patch to mind from F S Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned - now there's a tale yet to be modernistically filmed.
