A good entertaining movie about the reality of soccer
This movie sets itself in an alternate universe of present Indonesia. However, the story itself can be found in relation to any football drama around the world; it's about how football is affected by the bookies.
Hari ini pasti menang, is really how the team will win because it's set by the bookie.
The presence of senior actors create several memorable scene and the story is clearly a well written one.
Don't get tricked by the lousy rating, it's not action packed and it requires some thinking about the story; which is why the average indonesian watcher might not fully grasped the beauty of it.
Above all, this movie shows how Indonesia can create good movie per se, and not just an attempt to make money out.
