Latiff, a famous but lonely photographer who was orphaned as a small child, sets out on an expedition to photograph abandoned houses around Malaysia. On his journey, he is haunted by images and sounds that remind him of his traumatic childhood. At one particular house on the island of Penang, he is transported back through time to witness the shocking events that took place in the house over 50 years ago. Through his experience, Latiff understands the tragic circumstances that led to him being orphaned, and also finds an old friend...The Red Kebaya.
Just seen the 'Red Kebaya' at the odeon Covent garden in London, something to do with Malaysian week here. A great film, beautifully paced to develop into a dramatic and highly memorable climax. Mrs Reynolds, played by Samantha Schubert was brilliant, she generated a real feeling of dislike from the start and developed into genuine revulsion. Bob Mercer and Malaysian actress Vanidah Imran were also great as the tragic lovers from different cultures. Overall a sensitively and expertly crafted production of a difficult and emotive subject, brilliantly written and directed with perfect sound, music and cinematography.
well done all to the producers for having the guts to make this film and producing a quality product for which the country should rightly be proud.
