Brief frontal/rear nudity of a boy (Jia Ler Koh, 11) in a shower scene.

Behind the scenes

Koh Jia Ler, the first-time child actor in the award-winning local film Ilo Ilo, was caned for real several times in two takes while shooting a scene.
It is a literal example of how director Anthony Chen cracks the whip to achieve his vision.
Says Jia Ler, 12, whose mother was fine with the caning since she used to cane him when he was younger: "Anthony talked to me about it and I was fine with it. It was painful, but it's okay, because I know he wants everything as real as possible. The caning is just a small thing to me.
