Okay, I saw It’s A Great Great World few weeks back and it’s really nice! I mean, if you’re the kind of person who dreams of going back in the past where times are much simpler – it’s definitely the show for you! If not, it’s an eye-opener to the beauty of that Great World-era.
A whole load of Mediacorp actors star in a collection of stories where their lives revolve around Great World (Tua Seh Kai). There’s plenty of laughter, charming and heartfelt moments in these little stories. What I really loved about this movie was that they all spoke in their dialects – Teochew, Hokkien, Cantonese, Hainanese and Hakka – and only some of the dialogue was in Mandarin. It makes the whole thing so charming and authentic and unique! For example, eating vegetables in Hainanese could be eating excrement in Hokkien. I enjoyed watching it and it makes me want to brush up on my own dialect too!
