"Very nice!" - (per Mukhsin and Orked's intonation- watch the movie to appreciate this). And that is my verdict of Mukhsin.
But frankly, I love "Sepet" the most in the trilogy. Then again, Mukhsin has a different kind of appeal and persona! BTW, this is not a movie review!
Yes caught the 9.45pm show yesterday. Managed to get the tickets easily as MBO is Ampang's best kept secret!
Wifey didn't want to come along as she was knackered and in any event she's a teetotal non-movie-goer (I'm not a movie person either but sporadically indulge myself on selected movies, like Mukhsin and all Yasmin's flicks). My daughter came along much to Yusof's frustration! (yes on a school night - I told her this was an exception rather than the rule; she finished her exam yesterday so it's sort of a treat but really, to accompany me).
The main plot and story is simple but beautifully told (Yasmin lives up to her blog title "the Storyteller" and an accomplished one too) with interesting side stories running parallel. When asked what the message of the movie is during one breakfast show on TV yesterday, Yasmin had this to answer - there is no message really; it's just a personal experience that she is sharing! The acting throughout the movie is brilliantly natural and very real! Watch out for Mak Inom and Pak Atan's appearance. That I thought was the icing to the cake!
Well yes.....everyone has a first love story to tell don't they? But dare you publicly?
