Cute Girl (1980)

Hou Hsiao-hsien directs Fong Fei Fei, Kenny Bee and Anthony Chan in this Taiwanese romantic comedy where a city girl avoids meeting her arranged suitor by taking a trip to the country, there a civil engineer catches her eye.

The disowned debut of a revered arthouse director. I haven’t watched any of his later ‘classics’ yet. This was a vehicle for the pop star and TV presenter known as The Queen of Hats. She wears plenty of hats, her outfits are pretty sweet. It is cute and girly, the only way this frippery stands out from every romcom ever is the two male suitors actually get along quite nicely when they eventually cross paths.
