Review: Heartfelt 'Ilo Ilo' slowly builds a powerful emotional connection
"Ilo Ilo" is writer-director Anthony Chen's first film, but breathtaking intimacy in storytelling is already second nature to him. Winner of Cannes' prestigious Camera d'Or for best debut feature, it quietly demonstrates that in the right hands even the familiar stuff of everyday life can move us deeply.
