Plot

Candy Rain is a romantic drama which combines four intimate, lyrical tales exploring the range of women loving women in contemporary Taiwan. In the first episode, a young girl escapes a broken love for the uncertainties of friendship (and more) in Taipei. In the second, another girl, seeking her ideal, finds herself involved with a wealthy woman instead. Yet another story follows a heroine trying to find a balance between marriage and separation from her true love. The final story takes us into a dynamic and difficult foursome anchored by singer-actress Karena Lam. A rich, bittersweet spectrum of love and loss, based on true stories.

Reception

Critical response to the film has been mixed. Kozo of the Love HK Film website called Candy Rain "a light, lesbian-themed art film that's uneven and obvious in execution,"[1] but Russell Edwards of Variety gave the film mild praise for its "charming" performances and "gracefully shot" cinematography.[2]
