YesAsia Editorial Description

Taiwan director Chen Hung-I presents four shorts about lesbian love in the pop arthouse anthology Candy Rain. Winner of Best Make-up and Costume Design at the 45th Golden Horse Awards, the film explores different types of modern relationships through four colorful girl-meets-girl stories wrapped in beautiful art direction, indie pop sounds, and postmodern whimsy. Candy Rain charmingly meanders from one relationship to the next: two friends become something more, an introvert falls for a brazen older woman, longtime lovers keep meeting even after marriage, a masochistic tomboy comes to comical blows with her quirky new girlfriend. The fourth segment of the film has attracted the most attention thanks to the star pairing of Hong Kong actress Karena Lam and pop idol Cyndi Wang in an over-the-top tale of tough love. Other cast members include Golden Horse-nominated actress Sandrine Pinna (Miao Miao), indie singer waa, Josephine Hsu (Do Over), Niki Wu, and Jozie Lu (The Wall-Passer).

This edition comes with a booklet and a bonus disc of features (making of, music video, trailer).

The Bash Street Lollipop Girls Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
This movie of confused girl on girl relationships is shown as 4 separate stories ranging from sweet innocence, tender love, moans and groans in the night to a final outrageous, punky ‘in yer face’ latter. Certainly “Candy Rain” throws a downpour of soxs on the final relationship woes. Karena Lam is of course here (my hero ^O^), but only appears in the last of the stories (yes the final crazy one) along with Cyndi Wang in a mix of Bash Street Kids punk rock type romance. Karena being the philandering ‘male’ who keeps getting not so happy slapped by Cyndi and punched lots by her ditched girlfriends. Pink haired ‘cute’ candy Cyndi (who punches Karena a lot) and Karena’s ‘romance’ being the most eccentric of the bunch. Although having a manic and kooky final, the other Candy Rain stories are quite normal considering. But all relate to lonely women needing other lonely woman, and relationships that rarely last due to erratic emotions and splintered commitments. The sentiments and subtle emotional values the girls have for one other are mostly individual yearnings to be merely happy on the least of intrinsic levels. Needing someone to love (like anyone does) but finding self-emotions and circumstances curbing any real sustainable relationship; ending in tears, yearnings and stalemates.

This brings the film to the ‘what the heck’ type fourth expression, as if all the candy wrapped cute togetherness is no more than a quick fix and the limited love causing such disappoint that frustration burst outs in Karena and Cyndi’s final storyline. Punches aplenty (not to forget electric pink hair) and emotional decisions are displayed at their fullest colorful description. The visuals are anachronistic parody and almost vaudeville slap stick shock with a final reminder what's beneath the wrappers of these colorful (lovable), eccentric and highly emotionally charged candy women. All seek comfort in a relationship; the motif of a mail boy bringing a box of ‘candy sweets’ appears at all junctures. The candy being the sweet surface attraction. A second DVD features MVs (including great music by ‘My Little Airport’) trailers and a picture gallery. Also a small booklet is included. “Candy Rain” is a bit difficult to recommend overall being a marginal subject and a slow burner soaked in candy floss artiness with only the final bit that’s really electric. But certainly different. I suppose the only way is to suck it and see.
