Filmmaker Tan Chui-mui won the Tiger Award at the 2007 Rotterdam Film Festival for directing this Malaysian indie drama about the foibles of modern romance as told from a distinctly female perspective. A pretty young woman (Ong Li Whei) leaves her boyfriend in rural Penang to work at her aunt's broken-down restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. Amidst the hustle of big city life, she meets your archetypal bad boy (Stephen Chuah) and falls for him and his flashy lifestyle before a harsh reality sets in. Produced by Amir Muhammad (The Big Durian). In Malay, Mandarin, and Cantonese with English subtitles.

Tan Chui-mui---Malaysia---2006---90 mins.
