[DVD] Forever (我愛你愛你愛你 / Wo Ai Ni Ai Ni Ai Ni) (2011)

Wee Li Lin's second feature film Forever has just hit the cinemas over in Malaysia this week, but in the meantime the DVD just got launched yesterday at The Arts House Earshot Cafe, and a Collector's Edition at that too!

You can read my review of the film here.

The Collector's Edition DVD comes with a four frame 35mm film strip so that you can take home a piece of the film (literally) with you (if memory served me right only Haunted Changi had packaged their own film strip in their DVD as well). The film is presented in a pristine anamorphic widescreen that reproduces the vibrant pastel like colour palette, especially the blues and the pinks. The original Mandarin language track is in Dolby Digital Stereo, with Scene Selection available over 12 chapters, and subtitles in English or Mandarin though for the feature film only.

Special Features on the DVD include the customary Trailers in a letterbox format, one 1:31 theatrical trailer and another 0:30 spot which are jointed together. The Music Video (4:16) also presented in a letterbox format is of the theme song 我愛你愛你愛你 Forever sung by Joanna Dong. The Photo Gallery consists of 3 sections each with 10 photographs from the Film, Production and the Singapore Gala Premiere.

The only substantial extra on this disc is the Making Of (13:44, anamorphic presentation) which was predominantly in Mandarin with some English being spoken by Sarah Ng and Ris Low in their interviews, in addition to that with the lead actress Joanna Dong, with Alice Lim and Teo Kiat Sing. It's female-centric alright, though I would have thought a segment with Mo Tzu Yi will make it complete. Each interviewee talks about their respective characters and their experience with working under Wee Li Lin's direction, coupled with tons of footage showing the crew behind the scenes working at making things happen on the technical front.

For those who have not seen the film, now's the opportunity to do so with the release of the DVD, now available at shops islandwide, as well as directly from its distributor.
