Holiday DVD 2: Ice Kacang Puppy Love (初恋红豆冰) (2010)

Ice Kacang Puppy Love (初恋红豆冰) is a 2010 made-in-Malaysia Chinese movie, directed by first-time director, Ah Niu (阿牛) and starring Ah Niu (阿牛), Angelica Lee (李心洁), Gary Chaw (曹格), Victor Wong (品冠), Fish Leong (梁静茹), Eric Moo (巫启贤), Yi Jet Qi (易桀齐), Angela Chan (陈美娥), and Danny Chan (陈国坤). Penny Tai (戴佩妮) and Nicholas Teo (张栋梁) appear briefly as guest stars.

Ice Kacang Puppy Love is set in the 1980s in Tronoh, a small town in Perak and the story evolves between a shy boy, Botak (Ah Niu) and a feisty girl, Da Jia Yu/Fighting Fish (Angelica Lee).

In a nutshell, it's a simple, conventional yet emotional story of yesteryear - carefree childhood, memorable puppy love, heart-wrenching family problems, especially marital issues and parental pressures, and the yearning to leave home and venture into big cities.

Apart from its straightforward storyline and an impressive line-up of commendable Malaysia singers/stars, another aspect that worth mentioning is the perfect cinematography.

I'm truly mesmerized and surprised to watch shots after shots of picturesque and perfectly conceptualized scenes. Shot mostly in Perak and Penang, scenes of rural (kampung) and Chinese coffee shop lifestyle are perfectly captured, evoking memories and some tear-jerking moments.
While watching, I've to ask myself a few times whether this really is a locally made movie. It's just too impossible! Kudos to Ah Niu for his directorial debut!

Highly recommended. You should catch it on DVD. :)
