Bad news on the doorstep:Managin a meagre RM 220,000 at the Malaysian screens accordin to the FINAS jokers, this is likely the worst Malay movie I've survived since 2 Alam (2010) and I do feel sorry for its scribe Azwan Annuar, a nice guy whom I know. It plays out like an encyclopaedia of moviemakin errors for film students to take note of. Its amateurish editin, invasive music score and total disregard for a need of Act I, Act II etc. are horrific, but nothin is more terrifyin than the completely non-existent chemistry between the two leads, which trumps even the travesty of Joey Exist and Julie Ziegler in Toyol Nakal (2011) accordin to one review. There is no reason to believe they love each other, hate each other or even have met each other - maybe they shot them separately with a green screen!

who looks like my friend, Kurt.
Reminds me of:It's got a scene or two at the Sutera Harbour Resort, a beautiful place I once stayed.
I can't remember if I cried:

Olivia Lubis Jensen, the Copenhagen-born, 19-year-old lolita of Danish-Indonesian descent. She put in a remarkably mature contribution and provided the only reason to finish the film, if you could manage it. Decked in sinuangga and tapi, Kadazan gear probably never had a hotter, whiter model. She's also the only Indonesian in here without the unnatural, overclear baku that plagues the other performances.
Watch out for:

Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?Like Indonesian reviewer Daniel Irawan, I think this is a technical disaster of love story template that may have served more as diplomatic downtime between the two squabblin nations. And like my colleague Fadli over at Tontonfilem, I too found Olivia Jensen's snow white thighs to be the sole consolatory highlight of this otherwise putrid film. ★
|See what I mean. Were they even in the same movie?|
No chemistry whatsoever.
