Not your typical Malay movie
20 March 2005 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I have to admit I'm not one for Malay movies,well maybe yes when i was a whole lot younger.Anyway,throughout the years i have witnessed the downfall of Malay movies,a sad and slow demise.Malay audiences are more interested in seeing foolish teen-flicks with pop stars rather than actors. Sepet however is nothing like this.Its a movie about 2 people from totally different backgrounds who in the end(or in the very beginning of the movie) fall in love.However many complications arise since these lovers are from different races. What i really like about this movie is that finally someone has made a movie involving the Chinese and Malays,two races that until this day still cannot stand each other yet still try to live with one another.This movie is not ashamed to point out the flaws of each race but yet at the same time also praises the races concerned. All and all,this is a different kind of love story which should be watched by everyone especially if your a Malaysians.As i mentioned earlier,its not your typical Malay movie and thank God for that. (P.s: There's even one scene where Malay movies are criticized,and i loved that part.A slap in the face for people who like such MORONIC Malay movies)
