a plot that slowly but seemed to flow well. but, now I'm in love with Wakatobi
The film tells the figure of a Bajo tribe girl named Pakis (Gita). She lost his fisherman father while he was sailing and Pakis trying to find the existence of the father with the help of her friend,Lumo. Usually, they will go to wise man of their kampong and they were told that her father's mirror would help her to find her father( i think that's where its title came from). On the other hand,her mother, Tayung (Atiqah), is more pessimistic and realistic in the face of reality. That is where the conflict between them occurs because Tayung keeps telling Pakis to stop looking for her father. Problems and conflicts with her mother's increasingly complicated Pakis when Tudo, a dolphin researcher from Jakarta, emerged into their lives.
In this movie we could see how the four characters interact in everyday life and their different respective interpretations of the sea. However, they agreed that it is sea which can help them find their identity.
The Mirror Never Lies presents the story with a plot that slowly but seemed to flow well. There are some scenes that I found a little bit funny,especially because of Lumo; and his friend, Kutta, who likes to tell a 'pantun'. In the story, indirectly, the film also exploits the beauty of Wakatobi archipelago good view over the sea and underwater scenery would not be surprised if when after watching this film you will want to enjoy the beauty of Wakatobi directly. I mean, I literally almost cried and gasped when i saw how beautiful Wakatobi's underwater scenery.
In addition the film also indirectly lead us into the lives of Bajo tribal communities . Society still steeped in cultural customs and tribal life Bajo with a strong maritime elements, such as how they move from one place to another using a boat or even when the kids go to school Bajo tribe who also use the boat.
Also, I want to give thumbs up for the actors. Their acting were believable for me. I'm impressed of how Atiqah managed to speak fluently in Bajo language although it's definitely not her first language.
