Storyline

Two village youths decide to travel from their boring hometown of Jemapoh, Malaysia to England. One wants to see his favourite soccer team Manchester United while the other wants to meet his long-lost father. They drive a stolen red Volvo and hope that Manchester will pop up on the road map soon. Along the way they also pick up a girl who is being sexually harassed, and a rock musician whose concert was disrupted by thugs in batik shirts. By the end you're not sure if they will actually reach Manchester, but they've found some firm friends. Written by amirmu

Journey of discovery
24 May 2001 | by (Selangor, Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie during its short run in Singapore and found it quite fun

  • at least it tried a different genre (road movie) than the normal


Malaysian stuff. The leads were easy to like but the pacing is a bit slow and the youth slang rather outdated (is it supposed to be set in the present or the sixties?). The ending could have been stronger but I suppose they didn't have the budget for proper special effects. Still, your interest is held as these young people make a journey to discover the values of friendship, persistence, etc. Unfortunately this film has never been released in Malaysia even though many want to see it. The director is quite controversial for his political views but the movie is sweet and harmless, so I don't see why it has never hit our screens.
