Storyline

Young teenagers, Rasus and Srintil, fall in love amidst living in poverty in their small, poor village of Dukuh Paruk in the 1960s. Srintil is blessed with her dancing moves said to have a certain magic. Many elderly believe that Srintil is destined to be a ronggeng (prime dancer), which means she belongs to the entire village. This makes Rasus feel robbed of his love for Srintil, and in the middle of his despair, he leaves the village to join the army force. As time goes by, Rasus is torn between abdicating himself to the country or to pursue his love for Srintil, until a big political coup separates the two. Will their undying passion for each other survive the great tragedy? Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

 
Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk is Fusion Film
9 December 2020 | by fahmiarofiSee all my reviews

There are rarely Indonesian films that can hit the story. From initially dealing with issues of love and culture, it penetrated the realm of politics and history. The whole is well combined successfully.
