Eiffel, I'm In Love (EIIL) proves that teenager is the massive cinema audiences. Thanks to them EIIL became another major hit after the mega success of Ada Apa Dengan Cinta?
The plot is novel as a teen flick could be, but that's we could expect form the writer that write the story when she's in her fifteen. But, because of that, I think EIILL is too childish to me. Everything goes for the teen, to satisfy them, but for me EIIL is a plain entertainer with nothing valuable to offer. I had watched a lot of teen flick, but I still have this feeling that the movies are sincere and not so manipulative, so the more mature audiences still can enjoy them.
Except Shandy Aulia whose really know how to act as a spoil girl, Samuel Rizal as the leading should learn more how to act decently. Another cast has a fair amount being good and dull. A surprise cameo comes form Titi Kamal (from Ada Apa Dengan Cinta fame) and her brief performance is still deliver a strong result. She definitely knows how to act.
The pace is slow but growing fast when the set become locate in Paris. Actually, as a whole, EIIL have a nice production design. And that makes this still entertaining to watch. The soundtrack from Melly is still spellbinding and works well.
I think EIIL is trying so hard to be cute and forgetting that a movie should be structuralized well and noticing the importance of essence of the movie as a story telling. I mean, I absolutely got nothing to take home away form this. I'm sure EIIL is still entertaining but is in a blank way, if you know what I mean.
Well, I guess it's just not for my age or maybe I'm to hip for this?
