The main thing that is missing from this film is storytelling. The technical stuffs was an improvement from earlier Garin Nugroho's efforts with usual beautiful setting, and exotic scenery. Some Javaneses said it has many symbols about Javanese culture in it. But who cares when you don't get it?
All I can say it deals about one man's traumatic childhood with his abusive father and a young woman's coming home after living for a while in America. Some culture clash. Those who think know much about Javanese culture might say more (or say that I'm stupid) But again, whom the director made this movie for?
