Bittersweet yearning
28 April 2007 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Well I think this film pretty much sums up the notion that love transcends time and gender. A bittersweet tale of childhood yearning for a best friend that has taken a new direction as the two friends grow up to find the meaning of love and life when a girl threatens to upset the status quo.

The two lead male actors, Bryan and Joseph, give a sensitive and insightful performance as two best friends whose friendship is more than just ordinary. Kate plays the girl who comes between them and the girl shows grown-up sensibility beyond her age.

Heartwarming, poignant and ultimately heart wrenching. Watching it is enough to make any grown man want to cry.
