Yes, this film won an award at an international film festival, mai siao siao...
"We're still reeling from the shock. To my knowledge, this is the first time Singaporeans have ever won an international screenwriting award awarded by a major institution at a tier 'A' international film festival.
So there you have it - a simple little film from a little island about regular Singaporean folks, told partly in English, in Mandarin and in Hokkien, not to mention Singlish and some Malay, CAN TRANSCEND INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL BOUNDARIES and we can stop trying to make films to please notional foreign audiences by copying films from other countries. (Sorry for this outburst - but you won't believe the kind of crap we have gotten from certain quarters for wanting to do our 100% Singaporean story.)"Colin Goh-Director, Singapore Dreaming
