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!!!
