Last Friday, we went to the cinema for the movie 'The Journey'. Coincidentally, I have a 'Buy 1 Free 1' voucher and it was going to expire soon. Hearing so many positive comments about this movie, we just ought to catch it. Moreover, it was a Malaysian made, so must show a bit of support ! haha
Since this movie had been aired during the CNY time, we thought we can easily get the tickets. We were surprised when we were being told only the 1st and 2nd front rows were available. Wah, I never thought this movie still have so many people watching even it had been in the cinema for almost 3 weeks ! Nevertheless, we still proceed to watch this movie and sitting on the front row really isn't as comfortable as the back.
The Journey talks about a lady who lived in overseas since the aged of 8, finally came back home with her British fiance during the CNY to inform the aged father that they will be getting married. The father, a very strict and traditional old man was very unhappy but still blessed them towards the end because of his love for the daughter. It was really touching. The director was good in making the movie a little humorous too so we actually laughed with tears in our eyes.
A few days ago, I was talking to mum over the phone and she even mentioned about planning to watch this movie. However, something corps up and she did not managed to catch it. This coming weekends, my parents will be coming to Seremban and I hope to bring them to the cinema.
Second thoughts, I'm actually afraid this movie might make them sad and worry. You see, my parents are somewhat the same age as the father in the movie. It tells how his circle of friends passed away one by one due to illness. Am I being silly to have such thoughts ? haha
Anyway, this is really an awesome Malaysian made movie. Love how they uses many languages in one movie and emphasis on the tradition like eating mee suah during one's birthday. Sad to say, we never practice that anymore.
