Nothing heals a damaged soul like the sight of a small, adorable animal. In director Gavin Lin's feature film debut "In Case of Love", a tiny cat not only heals a young woman (Haden Kuo) reeling from the death of her mother, it also helps her find love with a lonely rock musician
(Tony Yang). A pure love story in every sense of the word, "In Case of Love" is a simple, heartwarming little movie about learning how to stand back up when life knocks us down.
Cast & Credits
Talking about the plot, this movie doesn't really have a plot - nor does he need it. You don't get details, just snippets of crucial moments and there is no conventional plot development (like beginning - issue - climax - solving the issue - conclusion), nor are we told what is going to happen with the present-day characters, two or four-legged ones! I, for one, didn't need to know. When the ending credits rolled, I was left with a smile and I was reassured that everything in life - no matter how painful, or bleak - can be overcome and all we need is companionship and understanding.
It's not necessarily a didactic movie, but it surely gives one hope!
