In the 1940s, Malays were world-renowned for their seafaring skills. Being of Bugis descent, they navigated the sea with natural ease and were often the favored seamen for international shipping lines. Pulang tells the story of one such sailor. Othman, a fisherman from a small village in Malacca, leaves his family behind to sail the world, with hopes to return home one day with worldly riches and deserved pride. After decades at sea, however, his low wages as a deckhand leaves him disillusioned. He contemplates returning home to his family but ended up settling down in Liverpool, England. 60 years later, his grandson, Ahmad, journeys halfway across the world in search of his grandfather. Inspired by true events, Pulang tells the story of two men who yearn to find the only place they belong: HOME.Written by
I browsed Netflix at random without reading the info...
And as it turns out , I really loved this film, it was very affecting. I had no idea what Malaysia is or anything about these people and their beautiful culture, golly it looks really nice there, and I bet it is really nice there I would love to visit and perhaps lay around there by the beach and enjoy all the nice atmosphere! I really fell for this story because it was charged by a powerful and intense impassioned backstory. I really loved the cross-over and arch-over of the characters and the main theme! Watch it if you want to experience your heartstrings tugging at your very soul asking if what you are doing now is worth it, is it really worth it... loved it.
