Muallaf (The Convert)


It is in forgiving that we are forgiven

Finally, I got the opportunity to watch Yasmin Ahmad's movie. It's so difficult to get her DVDs.
Muallaf is a story about 2 Malaysian sisters, Rohani and Rohana, who run away from home to escape their wealthy father's mistreatment. They finally stay in a small town where they meet Brian Goh, a young Catholic School teacher. Brian is irresistibly attracted to the 2 girls since Brian also has a childhood bad experience that haunting him until now.

Through the wanderings of 3 lost souls, they celebrate friendship, forgiveness and the coming to terms with the past.

Wow.....I love the movie wholeheartedly. I guess, I need to find Yasmin Ahmad other movies, i.e. the DVD of Orked Trilogy (Sepet, Gubra, Mukhsin), do you know where to buy them? Anyone?
