Mummy wanted to watched Cinta so much. She read about it in the papers. I knew there was such a movie but I just didn’t bother watching it. And because it was released on 30 November, not all cinemas are showing it now. Luckily, TGV still does and today, the three of us, Mummy, Pappy (who just flew in to KL yesterday) and me, went for the movie.
Upon entering the cinema, someone sitting at the row behind us said, “Eh, Cina ke? Jarang.”
She was trying to say jarang ada cina yang tengok wayang melayu.
Pappy turned around and gave her a cheeky smile, trying to say, “Yes, Cina dan kami tengok wayang Melayu juga.” with that smile of his.
Seriously, we were the only Chinese. But it’s not my first time. The last time I went with Pappy, that also he brought me to watch a Malay movie, called Soal Hati. And that also, he told me at the end of the movie that he cried. Suddenly, he became emotional pula and I didn’t cry also. Must be something that reminded him of something from the past.
Cinta, is a very good movie. Very nice. You will feel so good after watching it. I cried at one part, where there’s this scene of a little girl being torned apart by her parents’ divorce. She could only stay with one parent and was so reluctant to see her father go. Her mother chose to be with another guy, who happened to be her kind of guy she has always longed to be with. She hugged him like she so sayang him like that and she stopped crying only when her father told her he’s going to be fine.
There are 5 modern love stories entwined into 1 movie. I love Sharifah Amani. Excellent dialogue. The movie setting is very Malaysian so it feels very real and it feels like home.
At times, crying a little during a movie makes you feel so good after that. It does the trick. I was very happy after that. Feeling so warm inside.
The background music, I loved it to. It’s Cinta by Melly Goeslow and Kris Dayanti. Both are Indonesian singers that I like. But the movie version was sung by Misha Omar and Jaclyn Victor.
I love you.
