fish noodle surprise
4 July 2004 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This film drags on a little too long, the story is cheesy, but there's humour in here. To simply judge this as a drama is an error. This is dark comedy. Perhaps not particularly well-executed at parts, but a comedy nonetheless. The fish noodle man runs his late father's shop in Singapore. He sees a prostitute get injured, takes her back to his apartment etc. The main character is not 'retarded' in the way that we use the word. He's just different, and a little slow. Singaporean dialect is used here, mixing up Chinese and English.

I only recommend this film to people with a dark sense of humour.
