Conclusion – Personal thoughts and recommendations

Okay, I applaud these guys for such an original concept but I guess I’d have to aim my admiration towards the author of the novel this is original based on. This movie explored a concept many people in the film industry never attempted as many could never relate to the isolation of immigration as expressed so perfectly through Rachel’s Chinese-American perspective.

I would recommend this to anyone who has experienced the lavishes of Singapore or for anyone struggling with the same issues expressed in this film. But then again, I who experienced neither of the above, still enjoyed this movie and have thus ordered the book.

To conclude, a good thing to keep in mind is this is an adaption of a novel which I have heard great things about so if you are interested, give it a read!

If you choose to see it, enjoy! And comment your opinion on the film in the comments!
