With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, Cuak’s timely release coincides perfectly. A “romantic comedy of Malaysian proportions”, it is a feature film comprised of five short films about the same couple and their impending marriage. With some truly talented up-and-coming filmmakers behind the project, it’s not your average rom com.

Released on 14 February in selected TGV cinemas.
