Was It Suppose To Be Documentary or a Movie?
31 October 2007 | by Mr_SensitiveSee all my reviews

I don’t know how other feel about this movie, but for me I feel riff off (even after I got the movie pass for free). The movie pass that allow me to see any other movies in the Cineplex but I opted for this. The trailer looks so awesome – very emotional, the music add to the great mood, but the real movie is nothing like that.

Synopsis: Can’t really say what it is about actually, it a movie that feels like documentary but feel like neither of them. I can’t explain synopsis for this movie at all except it about a red light district in Singapore and some girls and men involve in having sex; that about it.

Normally like this kind of drama, a movie fills with emotion and metaphor. But for this I can’t find neither of them; nor at the end I was kind of lost of what the message is the director is actually trying to say. All I can come up is that he wanted us to have a look at the life in the red light district, which is about it. Noting else.

For me it was very disappointing, there are no proper story for me, too simple yet complicated and painfully slow. Maybe I think too much of it, but there are no story and also at the same time this can’t be called a documentary, cause if it a documentary I would feel even worst. The direction feels more like documentary though and some of the shot and angel is well done, the editing is alright but the soundtrack give way for the movie very well. Well cast and well perform. The only problem for me was the story, which is the most major thing for me.

Reason To Watch: Sorry, Can’t Think Of Recommending It.

Reason Not To: For Me, No Proper Story.

Rating: 4/10 (Grade: D-)
