Storyline

In "The Blind Pig Who Wants to Fly" you will find stories about disoriented identity, not knowing who you are, anxiety, uncertainty, the experience of being lost, told with a sense of humor. A father who is desperate to win a green card lottery, so the family can move to America. An ex-national badminton champion, whose husband leaves her for a Javanese wife. A Menado boy who constantly gets beaten up because everybody thinks that he is Chinese. A young girl who believes that Chinese firecrackers expel ghosts. Set within the contemporary social and racial tension of urban Indonesia, the story follows eight characters in their absurd journey to fit in within society in the hope to live better lives. Like a mosaic, this film is built from shattered pieces of colored glass. Delicate, fragile, beautiful. Written by edwin

I just called to say that this movie fails.
6 May 2009 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I just saw 52 movies at the CPH:Pix Film festival 2009, and this movie unfortunately fails in so many aspects. The theme of shedding some light on the problematic issue of Chinese immigrant population in Indonesia sounded very interesting in the program, and usually love avantgarde movies. But from beginning to end, i felt like i was watching a movie made by some art student that really wanted to make a point with every scene, but who does not seem to have learned how to put together a well presented movie. There are many interesting scenes, which in the hands of a good movie director would have been able to make a big impact. But instead you are just left with a feeling of watching something very boring and you don't really feel the the individual tableaux are connecting with each other.

Unfortunately this movie went to my bottom 5 list of the 52 movies seen at the festival.
