MUALLAF is Yasmin's second last feature film, her last one is TALENTIME (2009). Yasmin left us on 25 July 2009 at Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. After watching MUALLAF today, I finally completed my Yasmin's film list.
MUALLAF focuses on religion topics, which is very sensitive for a conservative country such as Malaysia. Today, more than a year after the film's world premier, MUALLAF finally lands on its hometown.
Yasmin often puts priority on her audiences rather than the film critics, she generously sacrifices "the perfection" of her films for that matter. Yasmin wants her films to reach out to as many audiences as possible, she wants to send her messages as far as possible...conclusively, just about one simple word with four letters, L, O, V, E. All Yasmin's films discuss on this four letter word.
MUALLAF is honest, simple and clear. That's the beauty of love, the beauty of Yasmin. My favorite Yasmin's films are: RABUN (2003) and MUALLAF.
