This movie succeeded in conforming international quality standards. This movie has a really nice cinematography, this movie offer some great views of Java Island. Great acting performances by both main casts, unique storyline, and also great soundtracks. The dialogs are real enough and not exaggerating, so it could really resembles about what is going on in our social life right now.
