The only worthy Indonesian movie to watch this year. The first Kalyana movie that actually works! Great!
And to picture gay story in Indonesia is quite risky, but this movie dare to do that. Even though gay story is only one of the three stories brought by the three main characters, it's the strongest one. The other two problems about adultery and compulsory to breed children felt like accessories to it.
