"ICE KACANG PUPPY LOVE is a profoundly emotional tale of teenagers puppy love, parental love, generation gap, truth and make-believe. Set in a unique small town of early 1990s Malaysia, the story evolves between a nice, shy boy - Botak and a brave and adventurous girl Da Jia Yu. The story brings you back to their experience of first love and crushes or what we call puppy love. The first love feeling is like the popular ice-kacang (shave ice) melting away even before one can truly taste it, only its sweetness painfully residing in our memory (Movie Details: Golden Village website)."
This is a sincere piece of film produced by Ah Niu. It brings me back to my childhood memories especially when seeing those kids playing marbles in the village. I didn't gamble for fighting fishes but I had one or two fighting fishes during my primary school time. I guess the reason I bought those fishes was due to the colourful fins they had. Looking back to the film, the movie is hilarious and the plot is simple. I have no doubts about the acting performance of Lee Sinje. Surprisingly, the performance of all the singers including Ah Niu are equally good. The most touching part of the story is the scene when Ah Niu was rushing to the bus terminal to bring Sinje a packet of ice kacang. He almost...I don't want to reveal so much and you just bring your partner to watch if you are free. (Overall Movie Rating: 3/5).
