This is really exciting: For the month of January, the critically-acclaimed film by Taiwanese American director Arvin Chen, AU REVOIR TAIPEI, is available to all Comcast subscribers in the US. It’s not even out on DVD yet, so this is the only way many of you will be able to watch the film if you didn’t catch it on the film festival circuit last year.
After screenings around the world, and awards in Berlin and San Francisco, AU REVOIR TAIPEI makes its on-demand premiere this month! Be sure not to miss incredible Taiwanese romantic caper comedy! Au Revoir Taipei is presented by Comcast’s new Asian American film service, CINEMA ASIAN AMERICA.
AU REVOIR TAIPEI, Director Arvin Chen
A lovesick boy and an adventurous bookstore clerk navigate Taipei’s night-markets, seedy alleyways and karaoke bars in search of love and more in this campy, colorful adventure-caper-comedy from Arvin Chen. Breezily incorporating elements of film noir, classic musicals, and Taiwanese gangster films, this dazzling romance is a tribute to being young, confused and utterly in love.
HOW TO WATCH:
• Au Revoir Taipei is available to purchase for view for all US Comcast digital cable customers with On-Demand for $4.99.
• Through your digital cable menu, viewers should click on the “On Demand” button, and then look under the “Movies” folder. In this will be a “Movie Collections” folder and inside of this viewers will find “Cinema Asian America” and will be able to access the film.
