Thanks G. Makes sense. Yep, i enjoyed the movie and still want to watch it @ Vieshow. I look forward to the dvd release.
btw, I wouldn't have discovered SPOT if not for Pinoy Sunday. Cool place. I love their audio CD store. Lots of great "non-pop-culture" albums there.

Not yet (I hope), but please let me know if you any download sites for this do pop up. We have made DVDs for our festival submissions. We're still negotiating with groups in the Philippines about distribution there and everyone we talk to (not just us) is paranoid about the film "getting out there" before we officially release it. Piracy is that bad down there.

I watched the movie at SPOT as well! Lot's of Taiwanese students watching so the place was full and I had to sit in the 2nd row.

Pinoy Sunday was great! It's actually the type of film I would write a looooong paper on in my student days. There was a Q&A after the movie and I wanted to ask a question but I was too shy and my Mandarin is really poor... in the scene where they were fighting over the dog, why were the scenes cut/spliced so obviously? I was wondering if there was a metaphor behind that I wasn't getting...?

I was pleasantly surprised with Bayani's acting in this movie. The audience kept laughing at his facial expressions, especially the 'serious' face. He came across as someone you and I would know in real life... well played!

I'm really hoping to read a review on this movie that would outline/point out the underlying meanings/symbols of the story. For one, it wasn't obvious to me that the colors represented the flag until someone asked about it in the Q&A. I'm sure there are lots more such as what the sofa represents... and the ending...

Planning to watch it again! And I know my friends are going to watch too... Thanks so much to everyone who made this movie possible! Good luck with the film festivals - praying for the win!

Got up early on a Saturday morning to catch the movie. I was surprised to see quite a few young Taiwanese people with the same idea as me. My Taiwanese friend and I were impressed with the true life qualities of the movie. Also the chemistry between the two main characters. It was well worth the extra effort to catch it while it's still playing at the theater. By the way the Spot Theater is small and cozy and just right for a non-traditional film like this one.

The San Francisco Film Festival recently finished - it's in April/May. Is this what you are referring to? The film has been submitted (and selected!) in several upcoming international festivals, so there will be more news to report as these happen. I don't know if we can still submit to the SF Film Festival next year, but if we do, I'll post here :)
