99 Lights Over Europe, screening as part of the ninth Indonesian Film Festival at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, provides a new perspective of the Muslim-majority; against extremism and radicalism, personal and cultural values are positioned alongside evidently increasing religious tensions within a secular Europe.

Hello Asia! TV Drama Review: Heartbroken Chocolatier (Shitsuren Chocolatier) (Japan 2014)

Shitsuren Chocolatier

I must start this review with a warning: I am both a fan of Matsumoto Jun and an uncontrollable chocoholic. Obviously a drama where MatsuJun plays a hopeless romantic chocolatier was always going to win points in my book.

Screening at the ninth Indonesian Film Festival at Melbourne’s ACMI, Mouly Surya’s What They Don’t Talk About When They Talk About Love elegantly traverses into a multi-sensory delight that depicts the lives of three independent female teenagers at a boarding school for the visually impaired in Jakarta.

Hello Asia! Indonesian Film Festival 2014 Review - Something in the Way (Indonesia 2013)

Something in the Way was shot over a mere five days. Yet, despite the small time-frame, limited crew and restricted budget, this independent film is anything but insignificant; every single frame of this ninety minute long feature film demands attention.

Hello Asia! TV Drama Review: Fall In Love With Me (Taiwan 2014)

Now, I am not going to pretend that I know everything about Taiwanese dramas. Hey, I might have seen one or two. But today, I will tell you about the amazing new drama Fall In Love With Me from Taiwan that I started watching.

The King of Mandopop Jay Chou once again touched down in Sydney to perform one of his now exceptionally famous concerts and he didn’t disappoint his strong fan base in Australia.
