semi intellectual movie, not worth while
15 May 2001 | by ilonalSee all my reviews

The movie is about a journalist in Jakarta who receives a telegram that his mother in Bali is dying. He does not want to read the telegram as he does not want to return to Bali.

Maybe the movie is such a failure (at least, that's my opinion) because the production budget shrunk to a sixth of its original size due to the Asia crisis.

Rahardjo based his movie on the novel Telegram by Balinese writer Putu Wijaya. I would suggest to buy the book instead.
