Singapore film received 15 minutes standing ovation at cannes

Saw this on PM Lee’s Facebook page.
Singaporean director Anthony Chen’s film, ILO ILO 爸妈不在家, received a 15-minute standing ovation when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. It is also in the running for the Caméra d’Or (given to the best first feature in the Official Selection, the Director’s Fortnight or International Critics’ Week).

Set in Singapore, ILO ILO chronicles the relationship between a family of three and their newly arrived Filipino maid, Teresa, who has come like many other Filipino women in search of a better life. The entire family needs to adapt to the presence of this stranger, which further threatens their already strained relationship. Still, Teresa and Jiale, the young and troublesome boy she cares for, soon form a bond. Their unique connection continues to develop and soon she becomes an unspoken part of the family.
The movie is scheduled for late August/early September release in Singapore. Looking forward to catch this movie in the theaters.
