Awesome Movie
2 July 2005 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Hi, people of IMDb I must say, Malaysian movies like this should be known. I mean, Malaysians directors have been making all these stupid Malay movies, which is giving Malaysian's entertainment world a bad impression.

This movie really shows how Malaysians live like. Do you notice that Orked mixed both language uses of English and Malay. That's exactly how normal Malaysians talk Like. Like if I wanted to ask my friends how was her day: "Hey, Steph. How was your day ha?" She would answer: Ala,nothing la. Why do you even 'ambil berat' of my life?

That's how Yasmin had directed this movie. She had made the movie look like an ordinary life of a Malaysian. That's why I think this movie should be known as the Greatest Malaysian Movie, along with: Puteri Gunung Ledang, Pontianak Harum Sundal Malam, (at least it was better than any other horror Malaysian movies)Do Re Mi, Tiga Abdul and other old films written by P. Ramlee. Dude, he is AMAZING. Bye

PS: Ambil berat means: care about
