The Good, the Bad and the Old Tradition:

After the international success of Liew Seng Tat first film, "Flower in the Pocket", the director is out out with his second film, "Lelaki Harapan Dunia" which also achieved global success as it participated in various international film festivals. Starring local talent such as Wan Hanafi Su, Harun Salim Bachik, Sofi Jikan, Jalil Hamid and Azhan Rani, the comedy film tells the story of a father who dreams of giving his daughter a house for her wedding gift. However, a series of mishaps that takes place in the Malay village leads to misunderstandings, accusations and havoc. According to the director, the theme of this movie is to highlight culture and tradition and he admits that the film indeed consists of many layers which have hidden meanings but it does not intend to portray the ignorance or sensitivity of the Malays. In terms of acting, although the film has no heroine or a handsome male lead, it has its own attraction to it. Actors such as Wan Hanafi Su, Harun Salim Bachik, Sofi Jikan, Jalil Hamid, Azhan Rani, Acong and others managed to make the audience burst in laughter with their spontaneous comedy and astounding acting performance.

Look Out For:

The house-lifting tradition practiced by the Malay villagers.

Trivia:

Before its release in Malaysia, the film premiered in various international film festivals.

Best Watched With:
Anyone above 18-years-old as this film can be quite heavy and deep.
