Director: Han Yew Kwang
Producers: Lau Chee Nien
Screenwriter: Han Yew Kwang
Cast: Yeo Yann Yann, Julian Hee, Marcus Chin, Alaric Tay
Film Rating: R21 – Sexual Content
Director Han Yew Kwang wants Singaporeans to laugh more and have more sex. The three stories in Rubbers revolve round love, seduction and punishment. But enough about themes and theories; this is a funny film, seriously. Han specialises in quirky comedies and here are some of the quirks: a suicidal magical realistic condom, a “Nordic” plumber, an egghead vendor of sexual apparatuses, and the best “sucker” in the world. Cue laughs (and lust) aplenty. Serious people are strongly cautioned, for this film contains indiscriminate hot situations, and fine local actors including Yeo Yann Yann in her most suggestive role yet.
