Movie Review: Formula 17
Tien, who is from the province, is a trusting and naive 17 year old. Unlike Waldo in Walang Kawala, though, he heads to Taipei, the big city, deceiving his family about his purpose there and doesn't end up a prisoner or dead. It's a light-hearted romantic comedy.
It is his summer of love and adventure. His transformation from a back-country bumpkin to a in-scene starlet is complete. Yet, his weeakeness, he falls in love with one of the scene's notorious heartbreakers, Bai. That is the central struggle of this light-hearted comedy. Redemption.
You can be the judge. This is definitely one to watch with your partner or on a date. Its available, with patience, at the Malaysian Filem Gay website.
