I'm Speechless.. AWESOME!!
7 February 2009 | by kanz-livpoolSee all my reviews

this is a very brilliant movie at the beginning of this year.. exhilarating yet awesome at the same time.. I've never seen such a thriller movie from Indonesia before.. it's a trend-setter, and it's a sign for the wake-up of Indonesian film industry..

i wont give spoilers, because it will loosen the atmosphere when watching it..

and the rules are simple: 1. don't find information about this movie, just watch it. 2. don't get up from your chair until the end of the credit title. 3. no question.. use your imagination.. (hahahaha)

I'm sure you'll never regret watching this movie.
