A Family Dynamic
10 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once I started watching, I was hooked on this story about a family and the things that happen to them. Seng is the son who gets a degree in the U.S. and is now coming back home to Singapore. The mom does not speak English, the father is obsessed with winning the lottery and daughter, Seng's sister, Mei berates her life insurance salesman husband C.K. for being kind of a failure. The best character, however, is Seng's long suffering girlfriend Irene, who thinks Seng will now marry her since with a degree from America he can get a high paying job. You'll see how money changes things, but what you're mostly seeing is a real life depiction of a family's interaction with each other. The story, while heavily dramatic, moves well and the acting is good throughout. For drama lovers, this is well worth your time.
