Cape No. 7 is an award-winning romantic comedy from 2008 about a young Taiwanese postman Aga (played by Fan Tan), recently back from Taipei after finding no success as a singer.  Aga tries to deliver an old love letter to an address once called “Cape #7.”  He not only discovers a love story that transcends Taiwanese and Japanese cultural boundaries, but becomes captivated himself by a young Japanese woman:  Tomoko (Chie Tanaka), a Japanese model, has been assigned to organize a local warm-up band for a super star beach concert. Together with other five ordinary Hengchun residents, they form an unlikely band.  This is the first feature film by writer-director Wei Te-Sheng.  The film runs 129 minutes and is in Taiwanese, Mandarin Chinese and some Japanese.

 

Crowell Library thanks the Taiwanese United Fund (TUF), a non-profit organization dedicated to culture and performing arts, and Dr. Jerry C. Liu for bringing Cape No. 7 to library patrons.
