In Between Floors

This was much more enjoyable than I expected it to be. The trailer looked amusing but I’m accustomed to local movies (or just indie movies in general) being a bit of a let-down so I went in with low expectations.

I really don’t know if anyone outside of Malaysia/Singapore will really get this movie. I don’t know if someone of non-Chinese descent would entirely understand the points being made in this movie. But I certainly did find many things in the story relatable on some level. (Probably because I am one of these “bananas” although I don’t have as pronounced an accent as the girl in this movie does.)
