The Good, the Bad and the Heartfelt Letters:

• Maybe it's the rising patriotism since it is Singapore's 50th birthday or maybe the seven directors are really just at the top of their games, whatever the reason is, it has contributed to making a wonderful heartfelt movie that could be enjoyed by all, whether young or old.

• Each of the stories is deeply moving and offers a beautiful insight into the country that is Singapore. Eric Khoo's "Cinema" manages to scare without going over the top, while the child actors of Jack Neo's "That Girl" give a strong performance and the short film also successfully brings back nostalgic memories of yesteryears.

• K Rajagopal's "The Flame", Boo Jun Feng's "Parting" and Tan Pin Pin's "Pineapple Town" will make audiences shed a tear or two, while Royston Tan's "Bunga Sayang" will pick up the mood with a boy's funny attempt at communicating with his Malay neighbour while not speaking a word of the language himself. However, Kelvin Tong's "Grandma Positioning System" is the icing on the cake with its moving story and well-researched script.

• The cinematography for each of the short film is visually arresting, making the whole movie a delight to watch, even for those who may not enjoy emotional dramas, the beautiful scenes will still make it a cinematic treat.


Trivia:

• Director Kelvin Tong was reluctant to shoot the movie at first since his last short film was 1996's "Moveable Feast".
