丹绒马林有颗树 A Tree in Tanjung Malim
2004 | 25min | 中英字幕
A fictional autobiographical sketch from the director’s youth. A refined and almost imperceptibly sultry film. It barely has the onset of a story. A young woman,still a girl, saunters down the street at night with a man who hasn’t been a boy for some time. The mood is more listless than erotic. The dialogues are more bored than poetic, yet there is something contemplative in their strolling and chatting. The man is played by local rock star Pete Teo, but even if you don’t know that, his intriguing personality holds the consciously scanty story together. The director used to look down on old people who hadn’t made it. She regrets that now.
