A class of its own
15 March 2005 | by GodaleSee all my reviews

In this movie there will be a moment where you will laugh and there will be a moment when there are tears at the corner of your eyes, your throat feel lumpy and you tried so hard to control your emotion coz you don't want your fellow audience noticed that you are crying when watching a movie.. a malay movie that's it.

It has been quite some time since I watched such a movie that can move me into tears. The plot is simple. It's just about how people can fall in love at the first sight. The way Yasmin Ahmad took it and delivers it to us is enriching and enlighten. In this movie you'll learn to laugh at yourself and at your own race. The dialogues are well crafted and delivered in such convincing manner. It's where Malay, English and hokkien language used swiftly without any oddity.

Orked is a Malay gal that is different with her peers. She likes Takeshi and watched Hongkie movie such as A Better Tomorrow and Wong Kar Wai movie. Ah Loong meanwhile is a pirated vcd seller who falls in love at the first sight of Orked. He was so fascinated with Orked and tried to court her. Orked friends especially the guys really despise of her because she choose to have a Chinese boyfriend instead of her own race.

The ending left me dumbfounded. Totally different with what I had expected. Experience watching Malay movie makes it easier me to anticipate the ending but then this is not the same...

Go and watch this movie guys... You won't regret it...
