CAAMFest 2014 Review: ILO ILOLast night CA+T attended a CAAMFest screening of award-winning Singaporean drama Ilo Ilo. Read CA+T’s capsule review below.Ilo Ilo is a moving drama about a Singaporean family and its Filipina maid during the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Writer/director Anthony Chen deftly captures the emotional and familial trials when people are rendered expendable by a (global) economic system. The film’s key strength, its multidimensional characters, is due in part to the actors’ compelling performances but also to Chen’s screenplay, which achieves a delicate balance between humor and serious subject matter, including immigration and class struggles, only lapsing a moment or two into minor plot contrivances. Ilo Ilo is an assured first feature-length film worthy of its many accolades.
Ilo Ilo is coming to US theaters in April.
