This handsomely mounted period epic set during the 16th century
Malaccan empire is Malaysia's most expensive film at US$5M. The
princess of Majapahit, Retno Dumillah, exiles herself to the Malaccan
peak of Mount Ophir to entreat the company of her lover, the Malaccan
warrior Hang Tuah. This is in open defiance of her brother, Gusti
Adipati, the ruler of Majapahit, who had intended to marry her to a
prince of the rival Demak empire. Adipati then decides to forge an
alliance with the Malaccan sultanate instead by offering his sister as
bride to the reigning Sultan, Mahmud. Hang Tuah's allegiance to duty is
legendary. He slew his best friend, Hang Jebat, many years prior on the
Sultan Mansor's orders. However, the Sultan Mahmud, a preening and
decadent ruler, is a pale shadow of the glorious lineage of Malaccan
royalty. Should Hang Tuah banish forever his love in favor of a
Production values are excellent in general. Picture overall has a
glossy, polished sheen. Some inexperience in photography is evident
an intruding palm frond at the edges of the frame, actors half cut off
at the sides, shot suddenly partially blocked by the back of an actor
in front of the camera (!). The period milieu and mise-en-scene are
gorgeous, the palace rituals and traditional malay / javanese speech
appear authentic. Nice background research there. The music is
excellent with a nice mix of western strings and Malay traditional
instruments like the sruling during the love scenes and rebana in the
The acting is uniformly above par across the board, especially M. Nasir
as the legendary warrior, Hang Tuah. Malaysian actors are some of the
finest in this region and Nasir carries a screen presence that conveys
the nobility of this most famous of perwira melayu. It is also nice to
see Rahim Razali, a household screen personality, in an amiable
performance as the Tok Bendahara. Tiara Jacquelina as the titular
princess is adequately winsome. The script, however, does not allow her
to show why she was such a sought after woman. Sofia Jane appears more
assured as the Sultan's wife. Adlin Ramlee's alternately cocky, languid
and foppish portrayal of Sultan Mahmud takes some getting used to, but
in retrospect, it seems about right. Both the princess and the sultan
get a chance to shine with a neat verbal confrontation near the end.
The standout is Christine Hakim who, quite frankly, is a class act.
Alex Komang is a washout in a poorly written role as the Majapahit
prince, consisting exclusively of sneers and scowls.
The story overall could do with a lot more dramatic urgency. Many
sequences look thrown in to appease the multiplex crowd, inserted
without attention to the overall arc of the story. An earlier sequence
of Hang Tuah taking on a posse of 'lanun darat' is very well done.
However, there is a gratuitous action sequence which comes in so far
off leftfield, involving some silly 70s- style kungfu fighting, that
threatens to derail the entire film. This is the sort of action
sequence where a fighter slashes his dagger in the air and ten
fireballs erupt around him from the ground. Although this was meant as
a 'battle of the mind', the overall effect is laughably cheesy. Worse,
the whole sequence is arbitrarily inserted at a most inappropriate part
of the narrative there is no buildup and aftermath. Likewise, CGI
superimposition of the 'seven requests of the princess', floating
across the screen like a ticker tape, is ungainly.
Elsewhere, instead of character driven scenes, we get actors who pose
and pose while mouthing purple prose. Many issues are unfocused as a
result. Why and how did Hang Tuah and Dumillah fall in love? There are
nice scenes of the couple riding horseback, doing an intricate
courtship dance, at a lake. They look pretty, like postcards of two
people in love, but the scenes lack actual resonance. At one point,
Hang Tuah shows the princess his big Keris; she stares in awe at it.
Unfortunately, no character driven dialog. The crucial scene where Hang
Tuah meets his beloved atop Mount Ophir starts off nicely: like a
breathless teenager hopelessly late for a date, he blurts: 'Dah tunggu
lama ke?' ('Been waiting long?'). However, this is proceeded by endless
swooping, panning and swirling of the camera around the actors
including editing that I believe violate the 180 degree rule. All that
'technique' is frankly distracting. What's wrong with action-reaction,
medium two shots and close-ups anyway? There are more than several
shots where the emphasis was more on a sunset or a waterfall than the
characters themselves. Anyway, the lovers go at it with dialog cribbed
from a Harlequin romance.
Whither the inner conflict of the noble warrior between love and duty?
We do get a solitary soliloquy of sorts: Hang Tuah talking to his
reflection in a puddle of water like a refugee from an Ingmar Bergman
film, and that's it. Why the great animosity between Hang Tuah and the
Java prince? The film offers absolutely no exposition there.
Being a prestige film, direction is serious and high minded. However,
this is largely betrayed by a dearth of psychological depth and
dramatic weight. A certain lack of joie-de-vivre permeates the film,
making one wish that the late great P. Ramlee could lend his
charismatic presence to the whole proceedings.
The film ends poetically with Hang Tuah rushing up Mount Ophir in a
sequence of solemn and hushed silence, in a moment of cathartic
realization and sadness. The broad strokes for a grand tragedy are all
there, but the interlocking narrative is unfocused. It's like hearing
bits and pieces of a symphony from a distance. It's a shame: the money
saved from that silly bit of aerial kungfu fighting could have gone
towards additional scenes between the two main characters the final
sequence could have had much more impact.
