1997 Persian film Children of heaven on Okto at 10pm 17 Feb2013

This is the original Iranian movie. It will be shown in Persian language with English subtitles.

Jack Neo made a copy of it in local context in 2003 and called it Home Run. Megan Zheng, at that time 10 years old, became the first Singaporean to win a Golden Horse award in Taiwan.

This is one of the problems with local movies - no original ideas.

Well even in Hollywood once in a while they also need new fresh ideas hence you have the Magnificent Seven aka The Seven Samurai, The Last Man Standing aka Yojimbo,The Departed which won an Oscar aka Infernal Affairs to name a few :)

Eric Khoo and Royston Tan are OK. Hong Kong got Tsui Hark, Ann Hui and Wong Kar Wai.

Jack Neo is no where near to their league.
