Malaysia’s beloved brilliant filmmaker Yasmin Ahmad (Sepet) may have gone, but after yet another great piece by Chiu Keng Guan, the locals may soon realise that he’s also a gem in our film industry. The Journey is a sincere, heartwarming and relatable film that touches on general local issues such as cultural differences, compromise, mutual acceptance, language barrier, old friendship and of course, family.
