"Rayya Cahaya di Atas Cahaya" provides a new kind of movie, which you can rarely find nowadays. You will watch a theatrical performance in a movie, with a strong script, unique dialogue, and sometimes, poetry-like conversation. This movie also gives you a different viewpoint of how to deal with disappointment, sadness, and grudge, which Rayya and Arya try to cope. At first, the dialogue seemed unnatural (because of the poetry-like script), but eventually you will feel the flow of each dialogue Rayya and Arya do is so smartly interconnected, thanks to Tyo Pakusadewo (Arya) who successfully act as a patient middle-aged man who try to embrace a control-freak,emotional, and unstable young Rayya (Titi Rajo Bintang). The strength script of this movie is also boosted by a beautiful scenery of the plot taken place. Green, humble, and 'untouched' environment, become the background of this photographical movie. In summary, this movie exhibits a hybrid of theatrical performance and photographical showcase, which we quite hardly find in this era of commercialism.
