The Wind that Shakes our Booties























Cast:

Ad To
Ethan
Zafar Alif

Director:
Ni Kon

Synopsis:
Set in 2007 in Malaysia, THE WIND THAT SHAKES OUR BOOTIES is the story of Ah Seng (Ad To), a young Hokkien-speaking Chinese boy who wants to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a porn star. When his friend is brutally murdered for standing up to a porn Director, Bhatang Keras (Zafar Alif), Ah Seng abandons his "acting" career and joins his good friend, Ah Ngiu (Ethan) in the fight for freedom. Freedom of nudity in the beach! Freedom of self-expression! Freedom of love!

Ad To and Ethan both give standout performances as the battling brothers. Ad To flashes his otherworldly hazel brown eyes and conveys his character's fierce intellect, as well as the deep sadness of his "struggle". Ethan, for his part, tries to come off as all brawn and bravery, but cannot conceal his sensitive heart--his face glows with rage one minute, then crumples into sorrow the next. Director Ni Kon, has created a deeply personal and controversial story, with an attention to detail that is heartbreaking in its realism.
