Review of KURUS (aka DAYS OF THE TURQUOISE SKY) by Yvonne Teh

Father and son bonding

I was pleasantly surprised that I found this review of KURUS (aka DAYS OF THE TURQUOISE SKY) from Yvonne Teh's ('YTSL') blog yesterday:

Like quite a few other recent art-house type Malaysian films which have got this strain of Malaysian cinema being compared to the Taiwanese New Wave, Days of Turquoise Sky is slow-paced, under-stated and often depicts lives which seem to be rather trivial, yet say quite a bit about the society in which these lives are being led. At the same time, unlike with certain recent -- and, sadly, to my mind, much more critically acclaimed -- examples, this originally made-for-TV work also still feels happily unpretentious.

Read the rest of the review here.

We scored a healthy 7! Thanks, Yvonne! It's cool that director Lawrence Lau was there to see the film as well and discuss about the film with you and your friend.
