Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This omnibus of films helmed by three female filmmakers from China, Thailand and Singapore respectively, occurs at a specific mealtime. All three stories are tethered with the question, “Will You Marry Me?”. Each story seeks to interpret the frailties and complexities of love through different Asian perspective.

In Breakfast by Wang Jing, Mei travels by train from the north to visit her boyfriend who has settled down in the south. Breakfast explores the theme of finding one’s own bearings when in love.

Lunch by Anocha Suwichakornpong starts off with two teenagers who skip school to have lunch and plans to watch a film. The two teenagers spend the afternoon talking about life and their dreams.

Dinner by Kaz Chai begins with the friendship of an old lady and a young ex-convict, as they encounter each other every night in front of a church. Dinner also explores the theme of chanced encounters and lost love.
