Flat
17 December 2002 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The movie forces the characters to interact with each other, bringing into the open all the idiosyncrasies of their respective cultural backgrounds. However, the premise of the film soon runs flat. Granted, there are some interesting characters, but even these fail to rouse the rather dark and gloomy spirit of the film.
