The greatest Malaysian film ever!, 19 April 2000
Author: pinolobu from Malaysia

Dare I say it: without a doubt, this is it. The best bar none, P Ramlee's classics included.

Good enough for a nomination for the Academy Awards for best foreign film.

None of the usual overacting (eg Haliza Misbun in Scoop), melodrama overload (eg, Chef Wan's attempt at crying in that forgettable nightmare of a film), stupid sidekicks (eg, Mr Os), totally unfunny "funneymen" (eg, AR Badul in "Panglima Badul") even worse script and plain miscasting.

The last time I saw a Malay film in a cinema is in 1990 (forgot the title - after which I promised myself never to put myself through that misery again. Then I saw this on TV and my faith in Malay films somewhat restored, even though I was still in disbelief - Malaysians can make quality films at last!

I had exactly the same feeling when I watched "Fire", the best Indian film of all time. Forget Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, that's for romantics, "Fire" and "Perempuan, Isteri &..." are for real movie buffs.

No slouching here, everything is tense, tight and I thought danger was imminent everywhere.

Congratulations to everyone involved.
