Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.08.11] Malaysia movie trailer news drama martial arts

What do I know from Malaysian movies? Not much, but I know what looks like a solid, well conceived piece of work and Dain Said's Bunohan ("Return to Murder") certainly fits that description. Todd over at Twitch who got the exclusive on this one thinks the film marks the maturing of the country's burgeoning film industry and we have to agree it does look a little richer than some of the fantasy/martial arts stuff that's come out over the last few years.

Dain Said's BUNOHAN is set in the secluded mangroves of Malaysia. Three brothers return to their home, each with their own path and each with their own fate. Kickboxer Adil, the youngest, is on the run from an illegal fight, while Ilham, a hired assassin and the oldest brother, hunts for his next prey. It is the middle brother, Bakar, an opportunist, that sets them all on a collision course of deceit, regret and murder. As quickly as their lives reunite, their ties are forever ripped apart.

Check out the trailer after the break.
