A brilliant coming of age tale from Indonesia produced with Dutch money.
17 January 2010 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Film critic,translator Lalit Rao saw this film at 14th International Film festival of Kerala 2009 where he had a long discussion with acclaimed Dutch cinema personality Mr.Orlow Seunke about film making process in Indonesia.All films which have sea as central theme are followed,discussed and viewed with great awe as viewers tend to have special ideas about people and places related to deep waters which are known for their courage and determination.Jermal / Fishing platform is one such Indonesian film which takes us on an adventurous journey of epic proportions where seemingly delicate world of kids is repressively brutal.It is in such an extremely harsh atmosphere that an innocent soul finds salvation.In a nation where teen comedies are devoured with excessive fervor,making of Jermal is nothing short of a veritable miracle. All possible credit for it must go to famous Dutch producer/director Mr.Orlow Seunke who conducted a screen writing workshop for young, talented Indonesian filmmakers.It was during one such workshop that Ravi Bharwani and Rayya Makarim submitted their proposal which was accepted by Orlow Seunke.This led to getting funds from all possible source including Netherlands Film Fund and Hubert Bals Fund. The best thing that can be said about Jermal is that it is a very tender film which would appeal to all viewers who are interested in issue based serious cinema.
