出走的时光 Hold Me Tight Movie Plot Summary : A warm and relaxing family-oriented film about two different classes of women who are not happy with their current everyday lives. Together, they go through the journey of motherhood and search for their ultimate dreams.
With the rise of Malaysian Chinese movie industry, we’ve been seeing more and more local Chinese production popping up here and there. One of the recent film that is set to go on local cinemas is 出走的时光 Hold Me Tight, a family friendly film that will touch your heart so deep until you shed a few tears. Okay, maybe not that exaggerated but it’s nice and touching.
出走的时光 Hold Me Tight features Remon Lim 林奕廷, Jazz Bai Lin 白琳 & several up and coming local Chinese actors/actresses & the film has a rather deep story line. Highlighting family values and the relationships between father/mother and their children, this film comes with sub-plots that are rather detailed where you need to focus more to fully digest the whole movie.
Probably a magnifying real life story that could partially apply to many families in Malaysia, the hardships and relationships problems within a family itself were amplified in this movie. From single parenting to rebellious acts from the children to cold wars to life threatening sicknesses to friendships and more, this movie which is not a big budgeted film highlights issues that any of us could relate to at a certain point of our lives.
What I liked about the movie is the editing that combines the scenes that makes the whole movie easier to digest along with the audio/music used at different occasions. If you look at it closely, there are quite a lot of separate issues and complications showcased in the movie with multiple values to comprehend. However, the editing connected everything altogether and it was something I wouldn’t have expected if I head into the cinemas to catch a local Malaysian Chinese movie production years ago. There were a few humor points injected from time to time too. The details showcased through the director’s eyes was highlighted too, try noticing the foreground-background composition in the movie and you’ll realize we have good quality production crews locally.
Though most of the movie filming happening in Melaka, it’s a shame that most local attractions weren’t highlighted. Those would clearly spice up the movie, also there were some minor parts that were pretty draggy. Overall, it’s a good watch!
Do support local production and yes, bring your parents to check out this movie with you too! You’ll be thankful for their existence in your life, cheers.
Movie Rating for 出走的时光 Hold Me Tight : 7/10
