Review

Red Dragonflies is a film where two storylines representing Singapore’s past and present intersect and contain thoughts of childhood memories and things that are lost. Rachel is an artist returning from New York who remembers the short spontaneous trip that she took with Tien and Junjie along some old railroad tracks in a village in the countryside. This film shows a personal experience that anyone could have. It is a journey where you leave it all up to the elements of circumstance with no special occasion or plans to guide you. Memories are as hazy and distant as daydreams in an imaginary space that is far from the harsh reality. The camera captures warm moments in Singapore from a day in the past, which are woven together like tapestry in the editing to produce an energy that evokes memories of the past as viewers watch the young companions exchange innocent dialogs and move forward with bold steps. Rather than unraveling a meticulous narrative, the film places value on the sensual tone and ambience that fragmented moments relay. The railroad tracks that the young friends walk along seem to lead on forever. This is a path that goes on endlessly exploring the world. The woods undisturbed by artificial modern structure under the name of development and the slow meditation on life that seems to go on slowly within them stir up a small whirlwind in one corner of the hearts of adults whose lives have just become too busy. The dreamy musical score at the ending presents a touching sensation that enhances the hazy overall tone.
