Malaysian love story
4 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Sepet is an excellent depiction of Malaysian life and the ups and downs that come with it. Kudos to Yasmin Ahmad on this great effort. I found myself relating to almost every scene as this is exactly how it is in Malaysia. The story line of boys meets girl, and both fall in love is given a twist as both are from different races and religions. To actually see on film how the different races react to the rest is amusing. As for the cast, the most refreshing is Sharifah Amani. She's a gem - and so cute in her mannerisms, which only lends to the innocence of her character. She does a great job portraying the typical Malaysian teen who's in love. Let's hope we see more of her. This movie aims to transcend racial boundaries, and I believe it will do so. I will watch it again and again. This movie will make you laugh, cry and think.
