Forever Love pays tribute to Taiwan’s local film industry in the 1960s when Taiwanese dialect films were cheap, stars were gods, and spies, giant monsters, and flying swordsmen crossed paths every day during lunch. In the summer of 1969, LIU, a top screenwriter is capable of cranking out multiple scripts at a time. But he is sick of writing the Spy No. 7 movie series for egotistic superstar WAN Bao-Long. But his grumpy shell is cracked when he meets star-truck Mei-Yue trying to sneak backstage at a premiere. Falling head over heels in love, he casts her in the upcoming Spy No. 7 sequel. This decision leads to a bittersweet romance spanning decades. Told in sweetly-campy flashbacks and semi-animated inserts, this nostalgic comedy set during the heyday of Taiwanese language cinema is a love letter to Taiwan’s history as much as it is a romance for the ages.
