Finally had the chance to go watch Yasmin Ahmad's Talentime on Wednesday, had to go all the way to KLCC for the show since there isn't much showtime left for this one, yet it's all worth it.
While most film company or directors are making Chinese Films or Malay Films or Indian Films , Yasmin seems to be one of the very few Malaysian Filmmaker to be making Malaysian Films, the saddest part is that her work is recognized and awarded in many other countries except Malaysia, I can't help but to wonder why...
Talentime tells the life stories of a group of inter-school talentime participants, like most of Yasmin's work there are plenty of emotional to be found in this film. The songs featured in the movie are really good to a point that it got stuck in my head, so good that I even bought the Original Sound Track yesterday.
Do watch this, put this on your "things-to-do-before-I-die" list if you have to.
Have A Great Day
