Taiwanese Movies


#1

Does anyone know a good online site to buy Taiwanese movies? I live in Denmark, and have a hard time in finding taiwanese movies.

I am especially looking for “Hidden Whisper” by Vivian Chang. I saw it on Gothenburg Film Festival 2001. It’s a very interesting film, and I’ve been wanting to see it again, but haven’t been able to find it. Has it been released on DVD or VHS?

cheers,

Good question. I hope someone else can provide more information than I’ve found so far about this.

A problem, DVD region coding aside, with buying Taiwanese movies from places in Taiwan is that they very seldom have subtitles in anything other than Chinese.

I know the movie’s out on VCD, but a quick search hasn’t turned up anything about it on DVD or VHS.

There’s also a website (Chinese only) for Hidden Whisper.

It’s out on VCD…? That sounds fine. Do you know a place, that sells it?

You might look around the site for IVideo, which is where I saw the mention of it on VCD.
ivideo.com.tw/rent_video/vid … lm_id=8311

You should also do a search on its Chinese name and vcd or dvd.

I wouldn’t worry about the DVD regions.

I guess that, the cheaper the DVD player the better the chance that you will not face problems with region-limitations. I bought a 100 Euro model in Beijing which plays DVD from everywhere. If you buy branded models, it is likely that they have region-limitations.

Cheers, Jens

Try asiacd.com or yesasia.com, same site.

[quote=“aceman”]Try asiacd.com or yesasia.com, same site.[/quote]I tried the link:

ivideo.com.tw/rent_video/vid … lm_id=8311 , but I don’t understand chinese. Isn’t it only rental, on that page.

I’ve tried yesasia.com and sensasian.com, but no luck. I find it a bit strange that it hasn’t been released yet, since it’s from 2001, and stars Shu Qi… I’ll keep searching. Please let me know, if anyone has another idea…

Try the following:

www.hivizone.com

Most are Hong Kong films but you can find some Taiwanese films there.

Another site, from the U. S.:

Happy hunting,

I bought a DVD copy of “Yi Yi” (wonderful film) from US Amazon. Though this is a region 1 copy you can have your player doctored in Taipei to play all.
