Be With Me – Feature Film From Singapore

Be With Me  - Feature Film From Singapore

Be With Me is a tapestry of three stories woven around the themes of love, hope and destiny. Although the main characters come from different backgrounds and lead different lives, they all long to be with their loved one.

Out in Cinemas 27th October.

Meant To Be is about an ageing provision shopkeeper grappling with loneliness. Just when he is about to give up hope, he chances upon an autobiography which changes his life.

Finding Love follows the mundane life of a middle aged security guard who has two loves in life — food and a high flying professional who works in the same building he does. The first he indulges in with great passion, the second, alas, he can only admire from afar. He decides to bridge the divide with a letter.

So In Love is the bitter-sweet chronicles of a teenage love less ordinary. A chain of events spark off a flurry of SMS’s which will drastically rewrite the blueprints of their lives. Unknown to them, these different souls will share the same stage in a play written by Fate, one which involves the themes of love, tragedy and redemption. The characters in the movie are ficititious except for Theresa Chan. Deaf and blind since she was 14, Theresa — who is now 61 — is a remarkable woman who has triumphed over her disabilities to live an amazing life. She will be the film’s beacon, a symbol of strength and hope.

THE BACKGROUND “Love, Hope and Destiny. For more than a year, my co-writer Wong Kim Hoh and I grappled and struggled, trying to pin these themes down in a script.

It was only in the summer of 2003 that Fate brought Theresa Chan — who’s deaf and blind — into our lives at a wedding dinner. When she learned that I make films, she immediately told me that I should make one about Hope. I thought to myself: “How ironic … that’s what we’ve been desperately trying to do.” Overwhelmed by her personality and vigour for life, I asked if she’d act for me.Without any hesitation, she lifted her wine glass and said loudly: “On!” We began to communicate through letters. I discovered that this one person represented everything I wanted to say in the film. What followed was a Parker pen from her in the Christmas of 2003 and on my birthday in March 2004, a watch. I got her hint … start writing and stop wasting precious time. In the fall of 2004, we wrapped Be With Me in 16 days. — Eric Khoo
