Still one of the most powerful Indonesian movie
31 August 2004 | by (KL) – See all my reviews

This movie made Christine Hakim as a living legend in Indonesia, although it has been years away but the movie present one of the best cinematography ever made in Indonesia, support by powerful acting, excellent scene and storyline.

I love this movie very much and saw it while I was kid. But I was knowing only a little to appreciate movie, but I found myself impressed. After several years this movie still in my mind, the scene of Christine Hakim in the jungle showered under the rain and shaking in pain with amazing facial expression I considered as the best scene I ever watched.
