A film that is a bit heavy to be watched if fatigue.
6 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

'Hanyut' is a film that is a bit heavy to be watched if fatigue. The beginning of this movie almost makes me sleep tiredly because I am not among those who had an interest in history. But this film is a film that awaited by public.

Starting from buying a ticket, I could see a lot more empty seats. Indeed, the Malaysian film lukewarm. Many prefer to watch foreign films. For me, the Malaysian film is getting better.

In view of this, I can feel that this film is not a comprehensive history. The setting is only used in those days, 18++ years. The issues raised was the issue of family and love.

Through this film, I can feel how you feel forced into marriage and children born trapped amid bickering parents. A mother who wants her child according to the local way of life and a father who wanted his son to follow a more luxurious way of life such as English.

In terms of dialogue thrown, I was a bit confused by the word used substitute yourself. Are intentional or overlooked. Sometimes they substitute themselves for using the word 'mereka semua' sometimes use 'diorang'. I was confused because of the time whether it already exists.

Next, in terms of acting, I love acting by Sofia Jane. Acting as a mother who has a pain in her left an impression. Just as with the other actors.

Scenes died bodies, who said that it remains Daim, indeed I can speculate that it is not the body of Daim. I just can not quite sure that dead bodies, who used to replace it.

The entire story, I can give 8/10. Congratulations to the production. Maybe I'm tired after an overnight shooting. That's why I feel this film is quite heavy for me to receive. Anyway, let's support the Malaysian film. Go watch in theaters while still within the showtime.
