Nice and Excellent Movies
2 December 2008 | by geraldhansSee all my reviews

I watch this while visiting Singapore in October 2008. Well to tell you the truth, I was amazed with the movie. Its really give excellent message in it. Eric Khoo has done a great job in directing this movie The plot it self is center father named Francis (Bosco Francis) who is at the end of his tether as a magician. He often takes solace in the bottle and barely ekes a living as a cleaner in a nightclub. He has 10 years old son played by Jathishweran, who help his Father to quit drinking and get out from chaotic life. The movie it self show a truly deep message how the son love his father and want to ask his father to get out chaotic life.

I really recommended this movie. A truly marvelous movie. And this deserve an Oscar for foreign film
