excellent Malaysian film
9 June 2007 | by steve-3639See all my reviews

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.
