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 think you're wrong...
13 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really disagree about your opinion, Mr. Bambang Budiman.. Have YOU ever lived in Indonesia? Were you there on 1998? These stuff really happened or happening, to me and many other Indonesians with Chinese descendant. And the fact that they can make such an artful movie about this still really sensitive stuff is really amazing. Seems like you're commenting only about the Chinese in Thailand, Malaysia, etc. It is different in Malaysia or any other south east Asian countries, they don't discriminate as much. So I think you need to know that before saying all that stuff. I think it's great that there are Indonesian movies like this, it is honest and full of story and reality. It's not just some cheap horror or romance movies.
