Anthony Chen’s lyrical drama about the relationship between a 10-year-old boy named Jiale (Koh Jia Ler) and his caretaker, Teresa (Angeli Bayani), in late-90s Singapore won the Camera d’Or award for best debut feature film at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Set during Asian financial crisis of 1997, the film focuses on Teresa’s arrival from the Philippines in search of a better life, and the comfort Jiale takes in Teresa’s expanding role within the family as monetary hardships threaten to splinter his parents’ marriage.

    I liked it a lot. There weren't any false moments. But I couldn't find any of you people, even though I arrived at the cafe downstairs at 1:45, went into the theater at 1:55, and kept looking around.

    I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, but I'm exhausted today. Recovery from injury can be odd like that! I'm afraid I'll pay for the movie and end up sleeping through it...I can hardly keep my eyes open right now.

    Enjoyed the movie - a thoughtful and quiet film that grows on you as the story unfolds.

    I was looking forward to this. I'm psyched that I'll be seeing it with other film buffs.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
