Ajoomma: Life as it tumbles along

FOR anyone whose most anticipated film of the year is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ajoomma may come as a shock. This small, low-budget Singapore film opens with – of all things – a shot of a middle-aged woman’s buttocks swaying gently as she practises line dancing in an HDB estate. This is as far from the hyper-sexualised bodies of superheroes as you can get, and much closer to the ordinary bodies you see every day, all around you, all the time.
