Write-up by Justin Johnson of The Times / British Film Institute 51st London Film Festival.

"Never falling into the traps of sentimentality or whimsy, Mukhsin is a lyrical and beautifully presented piece of work that will appeal to adults and children alike. The film's musical denouement stands out as a joyful and memorable conclusion to this remarkable film.

Winner of the Generations section at this year's Berlinale, Mukhsin provides us with an unmissable opportunity to enjoy a Malaysian take on the universal theme of the beauty of first friendships and first love."
