Actors Shaheizy Sam, Hisyam Hamid explore new territory in Singapore-Malaysia film La Luna

Sharifah, on the other hand, says her character bears a lot of similarities to who she is in real life.

“For people who know me, I think it’s quite obvious that I am a person who speaks my mind,” says the 37-year-old, who starred in the romantic comedy Sepet (2004) by late Malaysian film-maker Yasmin Ahmad.

“Hanie is only the catalyst and the heroes are the people of Kampong Bras Basah. Sometimes, we just need a little push to stand up to bullies.”

Raihan, 40, says he had the idea for La Luna after reading about a lingerie shop that was burned down in a Middle Eastern country.

“I was wondering, why would a group of men burn down a lingerie shop? What was so threatening? I couldn’t find the answer, so I made a movie trying to answer the question.”

He was very careful when it came to the risque scenes, such as the ones in which a married couple get intimate, and was “sweating bullets” while waiting for the film to pass through the Malaysian censorship board. It opened in Malaysia last Thursday.

Eventually, only two edits were made: One was to change a word that referenced a character’s private parts, while the other was to remove the sounds made by the couple during the intimate scene.
