Merantau

Merantau

Directed by Gareth Evans

Living the simple life of a young man in rural West Sumatera, Yuda must undergo “Merantau,” the traditional rite of passage in which a young man leaves home to make a name for himself. Heading to the bustling city of Jakarta, Yuda begins his trial of Merantau. Life in the city is difficult, leaving Yuda homeless and uncertain about his future. After a chance encounter with an orphan named Astri, Yuda is plunged into the violent world of human trafficking where he is forced to go on the run. Relentlessly sought by a European trafficking ring, Yuda has no choice but to face his attackers in an adrenaline charged, jaw-dropping finale.

Living the simple life of a young man in rural West Sumatera, Yuda must undergo “Merantau,” the traditional rite of passage in which a young man leaves home to make a name for himself.

Interesting for fans of the Raid who want to see flashes of the formula that Gareth Evans would perfect in those films.

I loved this movie when I discovered it. It's a worthy predecessor to The Raid, with a standard save-the-girl plot if I remember correctly. The 1st major Silat action film in the US.
