Journey the movie

TheJourneyMovie

Last week, I get a chance to watch The Journey on Astro, although is show in the cinema during chinese new year early this year. Is a very touching movie, it represent of what it’s like to be human. It touches on family, interracial relationship, acceptance, cultural different, friendship and language barriers.  I cry when I watch it…is really touch my heart.

The Journey is a cross-continental story that explores the idea of culture, not just as tradition but as an expression of love. When Bee (Yew) returns to Malaysia for the first time in a decade – she introduces her conservative father Uncle Chuan (Lee) to her happy-go-lucky British fiancé, Benji (Pfeiffer). With Benji’s lack of cultural understanding and comprehension of Chinese traditions, Chuan opposes their marriage. Unexpected circumstances ensue, and Chuan reluctantly submits to their union, on the condition that their wedding adheres to Chinese tradition. Part of that tradition is that Chuan must invite all of his childhood friends personally. So the quintessential odd couple, Benji and Chuan, embark on a cross country adventure to deliver the invitations. Despite language barriers and initial hesitation from both parties, the two men come to realize that their priorities are essentially one and the same.
