Indonesia Indy Film Gets a Thumbs Up
17 November 2009 | by (i1chocolat.blogspot.com) – See all my reviews

It's seldom that Indonesian filmmakers venture into the unchartered territory of making Indy films. Most of them prefer to make stupid films which focuses on some clichéd, lame topics, just to get quick bucks from the public.

The film is nice breath of air, far from the putrid smell coming out from the poor quality Indonesian films shown in the cinemas currently. Nice, unpretentious, unassuming little film.

A story of a boy coming of age. Of friends, of family, and of belief.

A good watch to those who enjoy Indy films. As this is a slow film, moving at a rather slow speed, it is not suitable to those who would rather watch action films, or films with fast actions.
