南方小羊牧場 When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep Movie Synopsis
Tung’s love has gone!
Clenching the note left by his ex-girlfriend in his hand, heart-broken Tung （Kai Ko） arrives in Nanyang Street. As the note says, “I’m off to the cram school”, Tung comes to Nanyang Street, a byword for cram schools in Taipei. In the street bustling with businesses, Tung begins to work in a photocopy shop as fate dictates. Every day, Tung photocopies tons of exam papers while expecting to run into Ying, his ex-girlfriend, at some point.
One day, the exam papers from Bisheng School catch Tung’s attention – a sheep in a monologue appears on the back of the paper every day. The sheep turns out to be a creation of Yang, a teaching assistant in the cram school. Yang (Chien Man-Shu) is an eccentric girl with whimsical ideas. She dreams of becoming an illustrator, but the harsh reality traps her in the school. The back of the exam papers becomes her canvas where she keeps her dream alive. Yang hopes that the students would respond to her “South Sheep Farm”, but so far her sheep has been completely ignored. Actually, these seemingly cute innocuous illustrations are a tool that Yang uses to countdown to a fresh new start after she was dumped by her ex-boyfriend.
One afternoon Tung draws a Big Bad Wolf next to the Sheep and writes a humorous comment on the paper. It begins as a private joke, but the exam papers are copied and sent back to the school by accident. No one could expect that the Big Bad Wolf would trigger such enthusiastic response from the students! More and more animals join in the conversations between the Big Bad Wolf and the Sheep and bring the “South Sheep Farm” to life!
A debate over love is launched on paper. It smokes the all the unique characters out of their dens in Nanyang Street. There are the crazy but kind-hearted street chief, the shrew and yet caring salesgirl, the mysterious priest with a soft heart and the pensive fried rice street vendor. The encounter with these people gradually changes Tung’s view on love. Moreover, the love that Tung is blinded to begins to surge to the surface. Still confused about love, can Tung say his final goodbye to his first love and move on to the next relationship?

南方小羊牧場 When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep Movie Review
Thanks Festive Films and Wanbao for the movie tickets. And I received a cute notepad too!
Before I watched the movie, I saw news about how the tickets sales were not as good compared to “Apple of My Eye” and the show was not as nice. I was skeptical too, because I wasn’t really a fan of “Apple of My Eye” either. The movie was pretty good, the music was great, but to go crazy over that show? Erm, not for me.
But after the movie, I personally felt that 南方小羊牧場 When a Wolf Falls in Love with a Sheep is actually nicer than “那些年，我们一起追的女孩 Apple of My Eye”! In what ways? besides the nice, sweet little ending, I felt that I can relate to 南方小羊牧場 better. It also have many nice little quotes of encouragement, which made me feel that, hey, I’m actually not alone, someone understand how I feel! The feeling of looking for the particular one, to have a double take when you see a familiar back, to be waiting for the reappearance… This movie is not just about first love, but also teaches one to learn to let go, to get over and to love again.
In one scene, the sheep asked, “到底有沒有1314(一生一世)呢 Is there forever in romance?” I wondered about it too, the guy who promised me 1314, I guess many girls or guys may had the same experience as me. Where have the promise gone to?
I also like the different perspective where they film the video, one particular memorable one is the part where the camera is placed on the box of exam papers and different people carry it. Also, the drawings of the sheep and wolf brought out the deepest feelings of the characters, and also said it out for us.
For couples in love, watch it. It’s sweet. For guys and girls out of love, watch it, it’s healing. For everyone looking for their next love, watch it, it brings you hope. 🙂
