“… You like who you like lah…” – Orked’s lament in the bedroom conversation with Lin.

Just watched Sepet, a Malaysian feature film by Yasmin Ahmad. A lovely paean to first love, lovingly told without losing itself into a commentary on racial, religious and moral issues. I can go on and on and on about why I loved this movie, why I raved and am raving about it to everyone I know, why I am going to buy the vcd/dvd when it’s out and why I am going to watch it a few more times. But I think it will suffice to say that this is one of the rare Malaysian stories which is told with such honesty and simplicity that it finds its way into your heart and stay on your mind long after you have left the cinema.
