A delicate film by Nan Triveni Achnas about two lonely people.
11 May 2009 | by (FIPRESCI,India/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

There are many films from different countries which have the name "The Photograph" as their title.This Indonesian film is different in the sense that it has been made by a former film critic.It is a film about two lonely,oppressed people.The feminine perspective of this film concerns an attractive prostitute named Sita who has no qualms about her profession.She is doing it to support her daughter and grand mother.There is also an old Chinese photographer whose life took a shocking turn after the death of his wife on railways tracks.It can be surmised that it may have been a case of suicide.The Photograph is a film about these two lonely people who are close to one another even though they appear to be different on numerous occasions. The film has the mark of a film critic as the director has put jokes in the later half to win audiences.The oppression of women is shown in the form of troubles faced by Sita who is harassed by her pimp.Indonesian director Nan Triveni Achnas shows us that the sorrows and happiness of lonely people are very much the same.This is a film about life and human sentiments as Sita's passion is life whereas Mr.Cameraman's passion is photos as he is interested in human sentiments.A good film for those viewers who would like to explore Indonesian cinema.
