26th Singapore International Film Festival Special Presentation Night for The Laundryman
Sands Theatre, Marina Bay Sands
27 Nov 2015 (Fri), 7pm – 10pm
The second night of the 26th Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) was a Special Presentation of the Taiwanese film The Laundryman 青田街一号.
The film centers upon a laundry shop isn’t quite what it seems. The beautiful proprietor manages a group of contract killers for hire. A hitman investigates on its secrets but he is constantly plagued by the much irritating and persistent spirits of his victims. It is a high-octane and vividly lensed genre-blender, utilising a riot of styles and references all at once, never taking itself too seriously and offering a barrage of thrills and swagger.
In attendance were director Lee Chung 李中 as well as his actresses Sonia Sui Tang 隋棠 and Yeo Yann Yann 楊雁雁.
