My own review on Echoes Of The Rainbow (possible spoiler)

歲月神偷

Echoes Of The Rainbow

A HK film which received multiple awards and nomination recently,directed by Alex Law and starring Simon Yam and Sandra Ng.

The story begin with shoemaker’s second son called Big Ears running out from a shop with his fish bowl on his head, seeing the world in his own perspective.. it really catch my attention from the beginning of the story. Then he start introducing his family members, his dad (Simon Yam) , mum (Sandra Ng), elder brother Desmond (Aarif Lee).. I like the way when his father ask him about school work and what he study in school, the first time conversation is like this:

1st conversation

Dad: What did you study in school today

Son:English and Mandarin lo

Dad: What you learn from English ?

Son: English

Dad: What you learn from Mandarin

Son: Mandarin

2nd conversation happen few days later

Dad: What did you study in school today

Son:English and Mandarin lo

Dad: What you learn from English ?

Son: Mandarin

Dad: What you learn from Mandarin

Son: English

The film maintains a degree of playfulness and naivete by filtering everything through Big Ear’s eyes. When the typhoon came, it changes the life of the family as they discover Desmond, the eldest son have cancer.. their world seems fall apart after that…a lovely movie to watch when you have free time ….just that the ending part is a bit disappointing to me
