Abang Adik (2023) NYAFF 2023

Two brothers, one a deaf mute, get caught up in human trafficking. While one brother is a straight arrow, his brother has been known to bend the rules, unfortunately both brothers future are linked forever

This is a good and gritty tale of two brothers sliding into darkness. Its a tale of brotherly love, and it is that tale that drives the the film forward and keeps us interested. Both Wu Kang-Ren and Jack Tan give staggering performances. While they are good through out the point where the sell the film and the relationship is in the moments between the pair. In those times when we see the two brothers behaving as only brothers who love each other do, the make you believe they are related. Having two brothers I could see how we interact in their relationship.

If you want a solid if a bit down beat tale ABANG ADIK is recommended
