Movie Info

Rachel (Lynn Chen) lives in idle luxury with a cheating husband, Professor Erika (Ayako Fujitani) juggles career demands while raising her daughter Sachiko (newcomer Ayami Riley Tomine), and struggling musician Yea-Ming (Yea-Ming Chen) is still chasing a fast-fading dream. Three women who could not be more different have one thing in common: their flawed romantic history with singer-songwriter Goh Nakamura (himself). When the amiable but unreliable Goh ambles back into town and into their lives, the past comes roaring back. This semi-sequel to SURROGATE VALENTINE (SXSW 2011) and DAYLIGHT SAVINGS (SXSW 2012) revisits the characters in a stand-alone story with a fresh new perspective.

Critic Reviews for I Will Make You Mine

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

More evolution than sequel, Chen's chapter maintains the laidback, low-fi charm and black-and-white aesthetic infused with Nakamura's dreamy, pensive music but also grows the characters, infusing them with more narrative purpose.

A female-forward work with three generously drawn roles for Asian women actors.

It's a slight film... But there's a nice attention to character detail and humor.

Youth has firmly fled and now what do you do with the cards left in your hand? These are questions movies rarely ask, and this one poses them with modest but genuine rewards.

Top Critic

Soft black-and-white cinematography (by Bill Otto and Carl Nenzen Loven) and low-key humor help offset the limitations of its partly crowd-funded budget, as does the naturalism of the partly improvised performances.

A beautifully shot, settled-down finale.
