Mission to Introduce Sumolah to the World. Greetings from Juan Le Pins, Antibes, France. The 60th Cannes Film Festival is alive and well.


First of All before i begin i would like to make an announcement that we have just found out that SUMOlah has been accepted to the FUKUOKA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. Yaay ! but that is not the point of the Sumolah exercise. We wanted Sumolah to be able to enter different markets and be chown in foreign cinemas , entertaining a whole new audience.
We are on our way. Itulah sebabnyagua di CANNES minggu ini, untuk memperkenalkan filem ini ke mata dunia. Tak kiralah kalau di CANNES orang tengik gua macam salesman, yang penting untuk gua capai harapan dan impian gua dan kengkawan gua.
Filem ini sudah bermain dalam minggu ke tiga di Malaysia. Sambutan untuknya masih ada walaupun tidak seperti dijangkakan. Kalau awak suka filem ini ataupun awak tak suka, tak pe. Filem ni bukan dibuat untuk menyedapkan hati semua orang. Tapi filem adalah simbol usaha saya untuk membawa filem kita keluar dari malaysia dan masuk ke panggung luar negara seperti di Eropah, Jepun, Australia, dll.

A big dream comes with big risk however, and with that i want to acknowledge the people who believed in this project and are still standing by its side. Insya allah kerja kita , jika berjaya akan di ingati ramai.

Salah satu dari beratus jetty di cannes, kesemua syarikat perfileman terbesar dan terkecil dunia (seperti syarikat saya vision works) berada di sana
Yang buat saya ketawa, poster filem Peranchis yang menciplak idea filem Jangan Pandang belakang, David Teo. "DOn't Look Back!" lakonan sophie Marceau dan Monicca Belucci
Kebanyakan hotel sepanjang riviera di saluti poster-poster filem-filem terbaru. Hotel Intercontinental ini di pajak oleh Warner Brothers sepanjang Minggu ini untuk artis-artis mereka seperti Brad Pitt, ANgelina Jolie. Tapi gua stim kodok dapat jumpa Don Johnson, Otai Miami Vice
Silver Surfer turut hadir di Cannes
Pemandangan di tepi pantai luar hotel gua di Juan Le Pins. Ada patung seorang gadis memandang ke laut.
Patung gadis itu.
It's skodeng time. Di selatan peranchis ni, kebanyakan wanita akan sunbathing topless. Wooooooooo! err.. i mean tsk! tsk! tsk!
Di High street di Cannes, mencari adapter untuk plug british kita.
Jalan Berhadapan riviera di tutup dan dipenuhi dengan beribu orang yang semuanya mempunyai impian dan harapan untuk menjadikan skrip/cerita mereka menjadi sebuah filem hollywood. CANNES MINGGU INI MENJADI THE CITY OF DREAMS.

Duit financier dah habis bayar? Must give back ROI tau! Kalau boleh pegi Cannes (yg sure gila mahal nak mampus) sure yang lain lain tu pun boleh kan? Trust you'll do what is right. Kita kat Malaysia yang cuma holiday kat Templer Park ni can only dream.......

Dragged few of my friends to go watch your movie. Now I've totally converted them to your fan! Good job.

NOKOTTA, NOKOTTA, NOKOTTA!!

vrempire said...

Power la lu Bro. Kodok. Bestnya gua kalau dapat amik gambar kena terajang dgn Silver Surfer tu.
Tapi, part sunbathing tu memang bikin gua 'panas' la (HOT!HOT!HOT!)

MsFigure said...

I love your work! Keep it going cause we desperately need fresh ideas like yours in this country. I dah tengok Sumolah, and I love it, love it, love it!

It's a bit dissapointing the release of Sumo-Lah clash with other movie. Tapi takpe, I believe in Afdlin Shauki. I will always support your work Afdlin. Keep rockin'!

Mrs Grumble said...

Hai Afdlin..
Congratss...always sokong u in silent...
Kalau P Ramlee ada lg, sure dia kawan baik dgn u....and u guys born in diff era just to continuously complete the industry....
the industry seem dry a bit after him, but now adalah sikit wet wet....alhamdulillah....
biarlah orang kata salesman.....peduli apa.....yg penting 'this salesman' sell not begging at Cannes.....i am proud even i am not in the same industry...
Syukurlah ada lagi manusia macam Afdlin.....
sori ini bukan pujian tapi kenyataan ....

Fadhli Imran said...

Jaja1958 said...

Cip....
tahniah atas 'kelahiran' satu lg filem bermutu hasil karya cip. I'm so proud of u. Dah 3 kali tengok pun still gelak besar lam panggung. Cuma mungkin sambutan jer yang kurang memberangsangkan sebab byk sangat filem yg ditayangkan dalam masa yg terdekat. Good movie but wrong timing.... Sabarlah cip....ni semua dugaan dariNya.... What ever it is, U R THE BEST!! All the kodoks will always be with u, with our heart, love & supports! Love u always cip.....

Shaz@Fukuoka said...

Afdlin-san,

Will you come to Fukuoka in September? Sorry masa filming Sumolah dulu tak dapat join because my husband and mentua came (same flight with you all). Only my dua pupu, Amir, dapat join to help your team.
Looking forward to watching Sumolah in Fukuoka and perhaps meeting your team!

MANDRAGUNA said...

Afdlin, saya ada satu cadangan, apa kata, untuk filem baru you nanti, ia berkisarkan tentang kuasa minda separa sedar? Pasti gempak dan ada kualiti.

Remember Yasmin Ahmad's movie "Sepet" ? Tak menang pun in Malaysia, tapi bagged awards overseas. Tu pun ada yang dengki. Cek tak paham betui pe'el oang malaysia nih...Entah bila nak maju? Asyik sibuk dengki orang jer. Sendiri bengap, instead of self improvement, pi kondem orang yang berjaya. ish ish ish...

So, hopefully "Sumolah" bags some international awards. You go boy!!

bobok said...
