Film Synopsis
Be With Me the new film by Eric Khoo (Mee Pok Man, 12 Storeys) is a tapestry of stories woven around the themes of love, hope and destiny. The characters lead separate lives but are bound by one common desire – to be with their loved one. The protagonists in the movie are fictitious bar one – Theresa Chan, a courageous deaf and blind woman whose life story inspired Be With Me.

Named after the colloquial Malay word for “anxiety”, it is nonetheless told with great assurance. Fans of her last movie, the interracial romance Sepet (2004) will be pleased by the return of protagonist Orked (Sharifah Amani Al-Yahya) and her kooky clan. But Gubra is different from the lightweight sentiment of Sepet. The director states her intent at the opening, which quotes from the Quran, “In the name of God, the most loving, the most compassionate”. Gubra is not just a love story. It is also a meditation on what it means to love, to live and to have faith.

    Have not watched Gabra, but Be With Me is good. Very artistically done and good cinematography.

    I am guilty a lot of not supporting our local film makers. As time and $$ r precious will go only for mega movies (read hollywood). The “Be with Me” DVD buy was impulsive but no regret. I did my part.
