With the 2 boys screaming at us, all i can think of is, "if only Charlotte and Michelle is here, damn you hollywood, damn you!". Charlotte is of course "the Almighty Assistant director cum Production manager" and Michelle is the Producer a.k.a "Mother", during principal photography of FITP. Both were and still are, currently away in China making a hollywood feature. Damn you hollywood, damn you!

These photos are from the loosely themed "More Prancing And Less Dancing" set that developed organically (read, accidentally) as the shoot went on. This set reminds me of the infamous (although not yet seen by anyone) power karaoke scene, featuring the highly talented, and only slightly nasally Azman . The scene is cut from the final version, maybe the good people at Da Huang will make it available in the "extra" section of the DVD.

这些照片有个听起来蛮轻松的主题 - "多一点腾跃,少一点舞蹈" 。在拍摄进行的时候,这照片拍出来的效果,对我们来说是个意外的收获。这让我想起了一幕(虽然还没有人看过) --阿兹曼很投入地在唱K。这一幕是过后删减出来的,也许大荒的好心人会让它在DVD额外的章节里曝光。

We did some test shots before beginning what ended up being a day long shoot. After some deliberation and a weeks of lepaking, Seng Tat and i finally agreed on an idea for the poster's key art shoot. The "idea" was to capture Ming Wei & Zhi Jiang horsing around as superheros. The other idea was to shoot them hang from a street lamp post.
这拍摄整整用了一天的时间。但在这之前,我们做了一些测试。这是我和城达经过一番商议和一周的游荡过后,千辛万苦才想出来的海报主题。那就是要捕捉明椳和子江扮成超人的搞笑画面。而另外一套就是拍摄他们悬挂在灯柱上。

Survival Report by Wong Tuck Cheong

This is not the aftermath of the typhoon. Liew Seng Tat got too drunk after the
awards celebration he collapsed and fainted on the floor as soon as he got into his hotel room.


Liew Seng Tat's double win of the New Currents Award and the KNN Audience Award at PIFF with Flower in the Pocket tends to overshadow the substantial Malaysian presence there this year.

INDIEWIRE: Early Festival Favorites!   by admin
Reviews 11/10/07 02:58:39 pm

by Doug Jones (October 9, 2007)

Although they didn't come with cake, a few other films have emerged as early festival favorites. From Malaysia comes Seng Tat Liew's "Flower in the Pocket," in which two brothers, left to their own devices by their hard-working dad, get up to all sorts of good natured mischief. Writer/director James Lee, whose own film "Waiting for Love" is playing later in the festival, gives a nicely understated performance as the father, but the film really belongs to its two young stars, who are tons of fun to watch as they run around town, exploring, playing and bringing new life to the old adage that "boys will be boys."

Two stories intertwine here, as a pair of neglected little boys take care of each other day and night in a small flat, and a man slaves away in the surreal setting of a mannequin factory. The quaint humour may not always translate, but the lensing finds quirky beauty in a poor quarter of Kuala Lumpur. Patient viewers will wait for Flower to blossom from something slow and gentle into a moving portrait of love and loneliness.

Vancouver International Film Festival

By now it's not surprising to find another talented young filmmaker among Malaysia's Chinese community, yet Liew Seng Tat's first feature is constantly, quietly, astonishing. A little film with big, deep pockets, Flower is equal parts childhood idyll, absurdist comedy, gentle social satire and family mystery.
