Below is the trailer for Bunohan, a Malaysian film with a trailer that’s trying to break some sort of bloodspilling record. That said, it actually looks pretty great. It’s the kind of gritty, hard-punching fighting film that you don’t really see in American releases, but mixed in with an intriguing dose of honest family dynamics and, well, scary-as-hell assassins. Ah, Malaysian family dynamics. So murky.
Here’s the synopsis:
Dain Said’s BUNOHAN is set in the secluded mangroves of Malaysia. Three brothers return to their home, each with their own path and each with their own fate. Kickboxer Adil, the youngest, is on the run from an illegal fight, while Ilham, a hired assassin and the oldest brother, hunts for his next prey. It is the middle brother, Bakar, an opportunist, that sets them all on a collision course of deceit, regret and murder. As quickly as their lives reunite, their ties are forever ripped apart.
And the trailer:
It’s the first feature film for director Dain Said, and it actually looks quite beautiful — when people aren’t beating and stabbing each other to death, anyway.
