Storyline

Setyo (Martinus Miroto) and Siti (Artika Sari Dewi) are young married couple with a classic domestic issue: communication. With their earthenware business comes close to going bankrupt, Setyo's ever determined efforts to make ends meet often make Siti feels lonely. Their alienation to each other is worsened by the presence of Ludiro (Eko Supriyanto), a spoiled character from the local wealthy family who is used to having all his wishes granted. In the spirit of the (Javanese) Ramayana epic, the story tells about what it takes to win Siti's heart. Written by bojleng_utomo@yahoo.com

Some might not like the style
6 November 2008 | by Aswinning_11See all my reviews

To sum up my feelings towards the movie, I'd say it's pretty and well-played.

I'm Indonesian and the movie was played at some Indie movie festival. There were easily 250 people but during the movie about 30 people left.

  • This is either because they didn't like the aspect of Indonesian traditional singing (slow and can be annoying for your ears!) - Or because the version shown was only subtitled in French.


So my advice to you is if you don't want to discover Indonesian culture and are only interested in Hollywood-typed movies with happy endings and pretty actors, pass by. Otherwise, enjoy!
