An interesting idea tarnished by bad film-making.
This is a good attempt. But the finished product is *very* lacking. Bad cinematography, horribly choppy editing, and a plot strung together very thinly. But there were some good moments (such as the tattoo scene, which still amuses me, and the conversation about vinyl, which rocked). The mixture of two languages worked to a point, but at times seemed ridiculous (and why do Asian films always insist on subbing English lines? More funny than annoying, but it always makes me curious...) The main actress was pretty good, as were some of her friends, and her step-father. Her mother was VERY melodramatic and her boyfriend was too bland for his role. All in all, this shows exactly how amateurish and low-budget it was, which is why it's potential is so high. As it was, the quality of sound and vision were just too low. 5/10.
