Filial Party: Reviews
The verdict is in
I was glued to my seat. Director Boo has created something very special with a highly-talented and dynamic cast. The shots of Singapore were simply breathtaking, and certainly helped to set the mood for the story. More of this from Singapore’s film industry please!Leslie Wong, The International Online Asian Cinema Review
Singaporean films are often hit-or-miss in my humble opinion, but this is not one of them. Christopher Lee delivers one of his all-time best ever performances in this film. 2014 looks like a great year for Asian cinema.Mohd. B. Ismail, MovieBoleh
Boris Boo joins the ranks of great Asian directors like Ang Lee and Zhang Yimou with this offering. A poignant and real look at contemporary Singaporean life, featuring a talented and likeable cast of Mediacorp veterans. Thumbs up for the Clooney-esque Christopher Lee, who hasn’t been seen on Singaporean screens for some time!Celestina Chua, Asiamovieblog
