Saviour of 2012 for Malaysia Cinema!
31 December 2012 | by fluffsetSee all my reviews

A young lady from Malaysia come to Istanbul just to meet her beloved boyfriend, but that naive girl doesn't know what will happen to her life there. A simple love story though, nothing new. Everything goes right, quite unpredictable but have its own strength which can attract people to the cinema.

First, their cast like Lisa Surihani who suit enough for the role, I don't know any girl can take that role except her. Secondly their location, Istanbul which is very attractive.

What I love about this movie is its colour, look very colourful and heartwarming, its soundtrack mostly from indie band thats so catchy and suitable. Its tone that not very slow and not very fast which make this film maintain its mode and successfully prevent audiences from falling asleep.If you love romantic Korea movielike, you will love this. Sweet! A lot of thrash this year but this movie at least save us a little.
