Movie Review: The Surprise - As One Contemplates Death, One Finds Love

If you're looking for a unique rom-com date movie this week, the Dutch movie, The Surprise, presents to you, a rather peculiar way of finding your "forever" - that is, if you don't mind reading subtitles.

This is to warn you though that this movie's director, Oscar winner Mike van Diem, does not use the same kilig tactics that the local directors' have used in the two successful local rom-coms, This Time and Just the 3 of Us.

First, the main characters are not a poster-picture pair - and they're not millennials. The movie also starts with the sombre themes of death and suicide, and only brightens up a bit as the movie transitions to boy-meets-girl.

In the end, it's the theme of "love conquers all" that lifts up the movie.

Life does become more meaningful when you find that person you can share your life experiences with.
