Did You Know?


Shortly after its success, this movie was adapted into a TV series version. However, the cast of the TV series is not the same people who played the film. When asked about his opinion on the TV series' casting on Prambors radio in 2003, Nicholas Saputra expressly stated, "I'm bored (with playing Rangga) already by now!" See more »

Diamond in the Rough

I wanted to see this one the moment I saw the poster. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to do it due to my busy schedule.

I got the copy of the VCD (the ancestor of DVD) during my second visit to Indonesia. And boy, was I happy with my decision to buy this piece!

The movie is based on normal every day life of high school students with various characters. The main protagonists are Cinta (means "Love") and Rangga.

Like other romance, both characters hate each other in the beginning, but fall madly in love with each other in the middle of the movie. Even though the main plot is common, the director successfully develops it into a brilliant movie.

I must say that this is a diamond in the rough despite the director's failed attempt with his other movie, Bintang "something" (I forgot the title, but I remember that this movie is so bad that I couldn't even go past the first half an hour).

I hope this one can be distributed in DVD format so I can keep a decent copy!
