FIPRESCI Award to ILO ILO

(Abstract):  

Jameson Cinefest MISKOLC IFF 2013 FIPRESCI Jury, after hard work of 10 days awarded Singapour film ILO ILO (ILOILO) directed by the Singapore director Anthony Chen. This is Chen’s first feature film and it was selected for the Camera d’Or Award at prestigious 66th Cannes Film Festival. The film also reflects very well on the peak of the Asian financial crisis in the late 1997.

It is the first Singapour drama, accepted in a manner, as an independent indie feature film in Europe giving the fact of the Camera d’Or in Cannes, but depicting the conventional every day life subject matter.  The value of ILO ILO conveys that little something, and it is a perfect amount of everything in the film in order to lure the Western countries audience into a story and get the right critic’s attention.

 Ilo Ilo is a tender and quiet  study of culture, society and relations within the different nature, where often nannies slip into a shoe of surrogate mothers. The film is about the way of how people connect during the big changes in the society. The story is clear and uninterrupted with extra or too tempered emotions, which what the Asian society really are like: it has no unnecessary complications or unexpected twists, placed into a plot in order to get attention of a certain class. It is simple and cinematically perfect, and it is certainly not boring in every sense of that word.
