Tiong Bahru Social Club (2021) NYAFF 2021 Fantasia 2021


A 30 year old still living at home with his mom is given a membership at the cult like Tiong Bahru Social Club which uses computer data to make sure everyone is happy. As part of the deal he is required to help spread happiness through the community.

Off kilter comedy is one part art film, one part satire and one part silly. This a film that you either click with or you don't. If you click with it its a charming film with odd people and odder asides. If you don't its a film that has moments but is trying too hard. 

I fell into it and was charmed by it and its drive just to be something unique and questing to be happy. It was an unexpected reaction since I wasn't planning on covering it and did so on a whim
