這部以音樂劇呈現的電影描繪台北的生活樣貌及都會輕熟男女的愛情生態和無奈,像是「52赫茲」鯨魚,一種無法被理解的孤寂。

電影典故來自一隻被命名為「52赫茲」的鯨魚,發出獨一無二的神秘低鳴,在北太平洋被軍艦發現,至今沒有人看過牠的模樣。「52赫茲」是牠唱歌的頻率,牠被判斷應為藍鯨或是灰鯨,可是這類鯨魚一般約以15至20赫茲和同伴交流、歌唱;牠是否因為這樣而落單?唱著只有自己聽得見的歌,成為世界上最寂寞的一隻鯨魚。

本片預計於農曆年在台灣上映,片中除了有大量的台北地景,魏導希望讓外國觀眾一窺台灣青年的愛情價值觀,透過輕鬆沒有包袱的方式來呈現台灣時下年輕人的生活樣貌。

In the form of a musical, this film portrays life in Taipei Taiwan, as well as explores the struggles and frustrations of seeking love even in a city with so many people. Like the tone of 52Hz from a lonely whale, we all from deep inside cry out for answers to our wishes in a relationship.

The story of the film originated from a whale named "52Hz" who makes a mysterious sound captured by a naval ship in the Pacific Ocean, which had never been heard of before until that day. 52Hz is the frequency of his voice, and was oddly different from his species which usually sings and communicates at 15-20Hz. People wondered, why does he sing a tone for only to himself, how did he become such a lonely whale? The story of 52Hz is all around us. Although we all face loneliness, loniness is only the beginning, what we do from that is the best part of the story.

This film will release in Taiwan 2017, and includes many sceneries of Taiwan. Wei Te-Sheng hopes to show audiences around the world the idea of love of a young adult in Taiwan. And through a lighthearted way, Director Wei wishes for us to feel the depth and happiness of life through his masterful storytelling and the universal language of music.
