Storyline

Setyo (Martinus Miroto) and Siti (Artika Sari Dewi) are young married couple with a classic domestic issue: communication. With their earthenware business comes close to going bankrupt, Setyo's ever determined efforts to make ends meet often make Siti feels lonely. Their alienation to each other is worsened by the presence of Ludiro (Eko Supriyanto), a spoiled character from the local wealthy family who is used to having all his wishes granted. In the spirit of the (Javanese) Ramayana epic, the story tells about what it takes to win Siti's heart. Written by bojleng_utomo@yahoo.com

Incredible!
8 March 2008 | by (Shreveport, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This movie is not for everyone. In fact, I have my doubts about how many people are capable of appreciating it. Those who are ready to experience something completely new are in for a real treat. This is the only movie I have ever rated a 10. Why this one? Because there is nothing else remotely like it. It is not possible to write a spoiler for this movie. The more you know about it ahead of time the better you will be able to appreciate it. However even with no preparation this film has the power to move you in hard to explain ways. Even if it had no subtitles... I am not a fan of dance, or of musicals, but the combination of the 2 here along with stunning visuals and symbolism is irresistible. I could not take my eyes off the screen! This movie is amazing!
