Garin Nugroho highly overrated first feature is a road movie about a newlywed man's sexual incompetency and the truth in the past that set him free. Sounds familiar? Secondary acting, laughably silly dialogue, lousy storytelling sink this movie into pretentiousness. The quoted poems from Indonesian poet Sapardi Djoko Damono are actually some distractions. The film tried hard to be symbolic and poetic but failed miserably. It may please anyone who's desperately trying to be an art-house movies audience. Others beware. And what a lousy ending!
