BATTLE OF SURABAYA recounts to you the adventure of Musa, a spontaneous, brave, thirteen-year-old shoe shiner, who makes a living under the pressure of necessity or poverty in the era of World War II. Meeting with Musa, Yumna has turned her life into a more colorful journey. Captain Yoshimura hopes that the war could be ended soon. He misses his wife and his daughter, Kioko, in Tokyo. Mr. Yoshimura helps Indonesia reach her freedom and then he can go back to his country. He has known Musa since he was a child. He is like Musa's father. Although life is not easy, Musa leads a life patiently. To Musa, life is a choice. As a matter of fact, being a shoe shiner is not bad; still, such a job less leads to what he is struggling for, that is to say: patriotic spirit and peace, both based on divine values. Physically he is only a teenager; however, mentally he is a hero. He makes up his mind of choosing a job as a courier.

It's amazing how Indonesia movies has become stronger since the Raid movies, Indonesia has now become the elite league together with Hollywood, Japan, Russia, Hong Kong and sometimes China.
November 10th is probably the best war movie ever despite the 2d animation, the plot is shown why war is bad and why it's the best is because it doesn't portray anyone as an enemy just the war.
The story is about two young kids, a boy name Muusa and a girl name Yuuna. Muusa is a mail delivery boy who delivers secrets code to different province in Indonesia during the Dutch, Japanese, and British occupation. On his way he has to avoid the soldiers or if he get caught there could be complications for his country. But his world turns upside down when he loses friends and war breaks out, hell on earth has begun.
What I love about this movie is that they manage portray war as unnecessary and an evil choice, and nobody is an enemy, just the war itself, for instance when the British soldiers occupied Indonesia, we see the British General as a cold killer but then we learn his tragic story caused by war, same with a Japanese diplomat, a Dutch landlords and even some Ninjas with tragic story, most war story even when they show civilian tragic they all seem to focus on one soldier group as the enemy, but here it's different, it really show the war I see bad and we all are the victims and should learn there is no use in war. If Disney would make a war movie, its this one.
