totally inept film-making
13 July 2004 | by (shah alam, malaysia) – See all my reviews

just watched the movie with my wife, lauded by local critics as one of the best malaysian movies ever, is actually a pretentious little film that showcases disjointed storyline at best.

to provide some insight into a crapfest of a film called 'pontianak harum sundal malam':

it tries too hard to follow the tradition of local superstitious horror element made famous by the genre defining japs and koreans. however, the timeline continuity and makeup are laughable and outright absurd (you have to watch to believe!), the director also tries to provide not one but two retar*ds as supporting characters for comic relief which turned out to be highly irritating personalization of Leo DiCaprio character from "What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)!(that's you, ida nerina & rosyam noor!). but for some reason, he (amateurishly portrayed by rosyam) became normal halfway thru the story, while the other retar*d (ida) died early on, good riddance!

the script is bad enough but the more obvious disaster is the direction by shuhaimi baba, a highly respected film director that shows none of her vast experience in the malaysian film industry. the editing is also one of the worst i have seen for quite some time. it's an ordeal for me and my wife to watch the movie as a whole. it's a waste of $18 for a piece of cliché infested (done without the charm) film. i should have bought the pirated copy instead!

to summarize all the hoopla surrounding this film - it sucked big time!
