The Longest-Distance Relationship

This is a documentary about four girls' attempt to understand each other's religion better.

Liked the informal approach to a serious topic! The interviews were interesting and I especially liked how they included their own responses seamlessly to the interviewer's answers towards the end!

32°C Fall in Love

The story is about how the cashier at a mini-mart and a security guard who liked her encountered a robber in the middle of the night.

The story is about a father whose daughter is getting married soon and he is reminded of the happy times that they spent together in the past.

Liked how the film is able to convey the father's mixed feelings without the use of much dialogue!



The story is about a little girl's sadness towards the impermanence of things or mono no aware in Japanese.

Liked the conversation between the protagonist and the little boy who is his classmate as they walked home from school! They reminded me of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke in "Before Sunset". The dream sequences were interesting too! The ending was a little bit too sad though.

Lollypop Love

The story is about the friendship of two pairs of couples in the hospital.

Nice music and pretty actresses but not much of a plot. Think I preferred the director's earlier film.

Cine Twilight

The story is about two actors finding difficulty acting in an intimate scene.

Found this film when I read the newspaper. Thought the monologues by the two actors were quite interesting! The gigantic videos on the wall reminded me a bit of "Persona" by Bergman.

To Mum (Love, Me)

The story is about how a mother learnt that her daughter was a lesbian and slowly accepting this fact.

This film helped me to understand the anguish felt by the LGBT community when they were treated as abnormal people.
