7 Star General Synopsis
Performed in Mandarin with English subtitles, 7 Star General is a
modern comedy loaded with male chauvinism and stupidity that will
keep you amused for the entire play. But there is more to it - the
infidelity, insecurity, and loneliness of the females also help to
complete the story. Based on a true story that occurred not too long
ago in Taiwan, 7 Star General exposes the emptiness and helplessness
of social dysfunction most people face in a bubble-economic society.
After acquiring a PH.D degree from the States, Jijian soon finds out
that the world is not as promised. In dealing with the fact that his
career is out shined by his wife's success, he turns to womanizing to
prove that he is a man with great power and charm. Along with Jijian
and his chauvinism and arrogance, there is also an old bachelor who
is eager to learn everything about love, a tramp that lives off
women? labor, and seven women seeking passion and the sparkle long
lost in their own marriages.
