This got my attention for the traditional and meticulous way with which matchmaking is made.  In an age where online dating and with sites like Tinder and online matchmaking sites all in a flurry to get the people's attention, this documentary  makes a very powerful statement.  What makes the matchmaking process in this documentary so unique was the personal connection between matchmaker and the people seeking for a match that will ultimately lead to marriage. Chen Hailun the smart matchmaker takes her time and doesn't go in haste, she makes sure both parties are willing to communicate before she can conclude with finality that  the would-be couple will be okay.  Watching this documentary has been very engrossing for me and something where viewers can get many realizations as well, based on the various interviews made of the couples.

Watching this film leaves me amazed and flabbergasted! Matchmaking is big deal as it's like you're playing god in deciding the fate of two people. But then, here comes Ms. Chen with her matchmaking skills that's really extraordinary!  Director Wu Wuna's documentary came to existence because of her curiosity when a childhood friend Yi-Fan got married to Alan, with the help of Ms. Chen. From there Director Wu decides to go deeper and this documentary bares it all, as viewers see interviews of couples who were helped by Ms. Chen in finding their suitable match.  Very engrossing to watch and two couples caught my attention; the first couple was a more mature woman and the man was younger, with the woman adamant of Ms. Chen's skills but it did work out and both look so in love; the next couple was, in this case it's the man who's anxious and hesitant while the woman is very vocal in expressing her interest but the good news, they had their happy ending.  The documentary was very in-depth,  eye-opening and hilarious at times as couples open up to each other during the interviews.  You have to find out if Director Wuna succeeded in finding her Mr. Right with the help of inputs from Ms. Chen.  This is worth the watch!

This is a very interesting study on marriages done with the help of a match maker, Helen Chen.  She's no ordinary match maker though and viewers will be convinced with her foresight and ability to match couples well, although not really perfectly. As someone with knowledge in marketing, Ms. Chen surely has the chops when it comes to finding the right match for the men and women, whom are mostly past 30 years old.  The therapy-like interview sessions between the couples and Director Wu Wuna are admirable, as viewers can feel the genuineness and openness of the couples in expressing their feelings and emotions. Very engrossing and this is one movie that most married couples can pick up a thing or two where it concerns relationships and understanding your better half.

  • Very eye-opening documentary on matchmaking in Taiwan but also  an engaging film on the various ups and downs that goes with having a relationship borne out of being matched by an expert.
