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

About Edwin Tan

 

Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
