My Magic

Director - Eric Khoo

Genre - Drama

As indie films go, this here doesn't disappoint. What we didn't really like though is the too sentimental feel which crops up often in the movie. Arguably, Eric Khoo has always had this problem, but in this one, it is somehow more pronounced. If it had gone darker, a more original work would have taken shape. When a downtrodden magician with a demanding beer belly takes on a dangerous job to support his son, events begin to unfold which may bring them both closer than ever before or separate them for eternity. We like the natural acting and real magic (the lead is a magician in real life), but as we've mentioned, it could do with less 'aaawww.....'. Still, the sum of good far outweighs the bad.
