Losing Sleep Over Sumo

Last night, director Afdlin Shauki had a small preview session for the First Absolutely Final Cut of Sumolah. We ended up getting home about 3 in the morning after a long discussion, thus the lost sleep.

The debrief post-viewing revealed pleasure, satisfaction and excitement from all parties! This considering that audio was missing for whole scenes, and there was no music or sound effects. It is a warm, effusive, story and has one of the most engaging and memorable tournament scenes - if not the only one - in local cinema history.

Again, Afdlin has taken a story and drawn out some wonderful screen moments, and it is his and the teams dedication to telling a good story that has brought it to the level it is now.

CAN'T WAIT TILL IT'S IN THE CINEMAS!!!

Afdlin made some final decisions yesterday which were supposed to be the Final Absolutely Final Cuts! So it should be going for the next stage today - no more edits!
