This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.

「性」に対し、日本とは違った情感が印象的。 年々経験年齢だけは早くなってる日本。けれど対照的に、この作品にあるような想いの錯綜さは、ないような気がします。

17歳でその答え方が出来るなんてシンガポール男性は大人ですね。

I really think Asians have problem of sex education ,as an Asian young directer,Boo maybe puzzled,but he presented the film we now watch is smart,and mix irony,grow-up sentiment. The feeling is sobriety.
