Ilo Ilo (2013)

ILO ILO 2013

Written and directed by – Anthony Chen

I was supposed to watch this film at MAMI. But it clashed with Holy Motors, so I did not. And now I know why my friends made fun of me for missing it.

Ilo Ilo is one of those most amazingly made neo-realistic films of recent times. It revolves around a Singaporean family during recession and is not only grounded to reality but also aesthetically so powerful that one would forget that they just watched a film. Its a rare experience.

The movie weaves itself invisibly into the lives of four people, three – a family, one – a Filipino maid. The intricacy of their relationships and individualities is the matter our filmmaker holds on to – to tell us this story. Watch it – because its beautiful.
