While shooting the film in Singapore, director of photography Martina Radwan was so taken by the plastic drawstring bags that Singaporeans drink out of that she bought several hundred back to New York. "They make perfect sense for film crews," she said. "You can hang them on C-stands and other equipment." See more »
I go to watch this movie with expectation to see how is the live of Singapore family. I am not a Singaporean, but already stay in Singapore for certain time, I enjoy living in this country. I haven't watched too many Singapore Movies before, but I like some local Singapore movies, like I Not Stupid, it can really portray what is Singaporean all about at a certain level. Well, Singapore Dreaming, bring another picture of real life in Singapore at some level higher. The plot is arranged nicely and realistic to explore social problem and 5C-dreams of mid-life crisis man with his family, with humor here and there. (5C = Cash, Credit Card, Car, Condo and Country Club). Every actor and actress plays their part very well, especially Richard Low as another role as a sharp-tongue hokkien. Along the movie, you will laugh at some common Singlish and Hokkien dialogs, but at the same time, you will see strong and touching message about life and hope. I cannot say this is the best Singapore movie since I have just watched several of them, but it will be one of my favorite movie. Very Recommended.
