Blog Aloud with Jack Neo and Mark Lee
The latest film to hit our local screens from Director Jack Neo is Ah Long Pte Ltd, which will arrive at our cinemas come 7th February, 2008.
Director Jack Neo and actor Mark Lee will be present at Golden Village Europa on the 4th February from 7:00pm to speak about the film at the “Blog Aloud” event, which aims to bring in the film directors and cast to share their working experiences in the making of Ah Long Pte Ltd with audiences after the screening. It will be an interactive session with the audience starting at 8.50pm.
Ah Long Pte Ltd is a light-hearted black comedy about the triad world and the money-lending business. The movie takes on a humorous and sarcastic treatment on the underworld. It depicts how a young lady, Li Hua (Fann Wong) tries to restructure her money-lending triad into a professional and ‘loving’ triad that stands against the use of violence after she takes over from her triad leader (Richard Low) who retired. Her various restructuring plans (which are no doubt very creative) bring about hilarious results.
Li Hua tired of her mother’s constant nagging to get married, she finally relented and proposed to Mr Fang (Mark Lee), an effeminate dance instructor cum image stylist. Surprised to many and even herself, Mr Fang accepted the proposal. The unusual union, despite the misfits, soon blossom into love.
