This movie is about the struggle to defend the nation survival
28 January 1999 | by hmiSee all my reviews

I must admit that this is the masterpiece of Jins Shamsuddin, a veteran malaysian director. It tells a story of Malays in a small village in the rural area struggle to combat the communists in order to defend their lives, families and the most thing, that is their pride.

They did very well in fighting the enemy but unfortunately they forgot to learn from history, Malays are always defeated by people from themselves, that's their real enemy.
