Arguably the best Indonesian movie since 2000
26 May 2005 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The most eagerly-awaited Indonesian movie (because Joko Anwar wrote and directed and Nia Dinata produced it) turned out to be the movie event of the year, probably will be the only one. An endearing small film (Joko Anwar humbly said 'it was just a movie, not a film') about the misadventure of a film delivery young man (Indonesian cinemas share film prints even today) who promises a beautiful girl to make it on time so she can tell him her name.

Countless movie in-jokes make this a real treat for movie buffs. Brilliantly written by Joko Anwar (who also penned the hit "Arisan!") who has made a remarkable directing debut. Witty lines and some intentional absurdity give ammunition to a great ensemble cast. Underrated by those who take it too seriously.

Many consider this the best Indonesian movie since its revival in 2000 and arguably so. A commercial and critical success in Indonesia. Kudos to Joko Anwar!
