15Malaysia: 'HOUSE' by Linus Chung

Among the five short features posted on the 15Malaysia website as of 26 August 2009, Linus Chung's tender and unpretentious study of a young boy's concept of his dream house immediately touches the heart. So very timely, too, in view of all that’s been happening around Kg Buah Pala.

“My father built this house with his own hands...” and that’s why Rama is happy to live in it. Outwardly it looks like a hovel, but the love that dwells within transforms it into a heavenly abode.

Excellent effort, Linus! Superb casting... and it was a real treat to see Yasmin Ahmad in a cameo appearance in the final scene. As Anil Netto pointed out, she looked just like an angel :-)...
