Storyline

Film. Probably the the greatest blessing that art ever gave to mankind. Everybody knows the filmmaking process. But only a few understands the role of a young man named Joni in the process. He's the man behind the screen. It depends on him whether people can watch a movie at a theater or not. Joni is a film delivery guy. One day, he meets a beautiful young woman who will tell him her name, only if he promises he can deliver the reels of the film she is going to see on time. Joni thinks it's gonna be easy. But that day, it seems that the whole city is conspiring to make him fail to keep his promise. Written by godzcomic@yahoo.com

What a surprise!
22 June 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Saw this at Sydney Film Festival. Just like the rest of the audience, I was so surprised that an Indonesian movie can be so funny, intelligent, and witty. We were constantly laughing throughout the screening even though sometimes I didn't get the jokes (but my Indonesian friend was laughing so the movie must have hit the right note). What I notice was the performances. They were so good, especially the lead actor who never overplays his character. And the story is also so well-written. This is one of the best films shown at the festival this year and I'm so glad I saw it.

We got the chance to have a Q&A session with the writer/director Joko Anwar and he was such a funny and humble guy. I don't understand some of the bad comments from Indonesians in IMDb. You guys should be proud of this movie. This could be your ticket to get recognized by international audience.

EXCELLENT!!!
