Ice Kacang Puppy Love 初恋红豆冰


Definitely one of the must watch local movie. This movie is produced by Ah Niu 阿牛, which is based on his childhood experience growing up in Penang. With a number of Taiwan based Malaysian stars, this film is a success. They definitely portrayed their character well :D Especially Gary Chaw.

A heart warming film that touched my heart. Reminds me of my hometown, Ipoh. The old coffee shops, taxi stands...even the Guli game that I used to play with my brother.

What I love most about this movie is the abstract shots that is able to portray the feelings or situation of the movie. Minimal dialogue, deep meaning. I love the sceneries as well!
The story tells about childhood friends who grew up together in a small town, and finding joy in things they do and also falling in love. But of course, in every movie there's conflict of love and relationships between the characters.
Ah Niu plays Botak, a shy guy who's unable to express his feeling to his crush, Fighting Fish (Lee Xin Jie). While Lee Xin Jie, plays Fighting Fish who portrays a strong character. Brought up by her single mother, she is upset with her mother for taking her away from her father when she was a child (she doesn't know the reasons).
I'm surprised that this movie wasn't censored as there was kissing, drinking and some suggestive scenes which was repeated xD I guess this shows that the censorship board is getting more lenient now.

I love the quotes and funny scenes in the movie. Some scenes also made me tear. One part of the movie reminded me of Sepet where Botak was cycling his bike and wanted to express his feelings to Fighting Fish as she was leaving town, he got hit by a motorcycle and fell. Too add on, when he reached to the bus station he got knocked down by a bus.

My mom was like 'wahh...hit by bus also din die' LOL

Though the movie is great, I feel the actors are slightly too old for their characters. When Fighting Fish said she wanted to further her studies. I stopped and think. 'Wait, how old is Fighting Fish again?'
Anyway, I shall not divulge much about the movie. Go and watch it if you can! ;)

肥妹的角色真是好笑又可爱!她晚上打扮,给 Botak 看到好像见鬼的样子令我笑到肚子痛! 哦哦~

Rating: 4.5/5
