ilo ilo movie review



While Hwee Leng has the unthankful task of having to type out pink slips at work, her husband Teck(Tian Wen Chen) also has more than his share of troubles at his sales job before he himself loses his job. The film also tells, a much less obvious story, about the economic trouble Singapore is going through and the troubles Terry has, and the Philippines as a whole, considering the fact that Terry had to leave her son behind to work in a country unfamiliar to her, as many other people from the Philippines do, in order to get a job where she earns a measly wager to send back home. |. |, May 2, 2014 Succinct, handheld camerawork and deft performances amplify the drama's emotional clout.

It is partly a Stockholm-syndrome symptom but also a genuine friendship, something that replaces an actual mother-child relationship. Directed by Anthony Chen. A sad window into a world economy that is still in crisis today. Nine-year-old Jiale (Koh Jia Ler) is the son of two stressed working parents in late-1990s Singapore when the economy was tanking and people feared for their jobs. Terry has been allowed to wear Hwee's old cast-off clothes and poignantly begins to dress and behave like Jiale's real mother. It all feels natural and organic. And the job isn't even guaranteed. This a really good movie, might not appeal to people who thought that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of the year's movies.

Ilo Ilo is a story told with enormous sympathy and flair, and an almost novelistic skill in getting inside the principals' heads.

The acting is strong but not outstanding, but it certainly does a good enough job at telling the story they want to get across. These underlines the main arc of the film and becomes part of it in the end. |, May 1, 2014 |, May 22, 2014
and to receive email from Rotten Tomatoes and Fandango. But Chen shows how there is arrogance and hubris here.
In 90s Singapore, the friendship between Filipino nursemaid Teresa and her young charge Jiale makes waves in a family, while the Asian recession hits the region. What gives this situation its force is that the division between rich and poor is not as clear as it appeared at the beginning.

What an impressive debut from 30-year-old Singaporean writer-director Anthony Chen, who graduated four years ago from Britain's National Film and Television School.

A low-key gentle observant family drama that resonates emotionally with intimacy.

When the economy contracts, their haughty attitude is brutally exposed. This quiet little domestic drama from Singapore reminds us films can achieve near-impossible heights and depths of intimacy and empathy.

Yann Yann Yeo is Jiale's mum, Hwee Leng, short-tempered and distracted. The midsection's a little flabby, forcing us to wait for certain plot elements to line up before the third act can begin, but on the whole this is a solid transition from shorts to feature-length storytelling. Don’t worry, it won’t take long.

Reviews, at least for a little while, will be shorter considering the fact that my laptop is friend.  So I can't go as in depth as I'd normally do.  This is gonna be a relief to some, if anyone actually reads this, cause I admit that I can be a little self-indulgent or redundant.  Plus typing out a truly in-depth reviews on a Samsung Galaxy S3 is a gonna be incredibly annoying.  I can't imagine writing out my Guardians of the Galaxy review on this.  I plan on getting a new computer, I just do not know when.  On to this film, I've ranted enough.  I don't think this would've been a long review either way, just felt an explanation was necessary. Terry is secretly doing weekend work for cash as a hairdresser, and Jiale is neglecting his schoolwork while he develops a system for predicting the national lottery winning numbers – a system which the school principal finds worryingly plausible.
