Storyline

1942, The Nederlands(ch)-Indië Government in Java Island captured Soekarno, an aspiring young man who wants to free Indonesia from colonialism. He was then put in Banceuy Prison at Bandung, Indonesia. Instead of lamenting, Soekarno found a way to fight back by delivering his famous defence oration "Indonesi Acccuse!" in his trial at Bandung Laandraad Courthouse. This story follows the life of Soekarno, Republic of Indonesia's first president, from his childhood until he managed to proclaimed Indonesian freedom with M. Hatta. Written by www.filmsukarno.com

Good enough, but not satisfied
26 December 2013 | by meivilim-529-254895See all my reviews

I'm an Indonesian, and i've interest with Indonesian history. This movies, are present the general Indonesian history, and for me Hanung, are concern in Soekarno's personal life more than the conflict about independence. Technically, this movie are good enough for Indonesia's, visual and sound effects are good, and some scene was so artsy. The talent are good enough to represent their own characteristic. For me especially, I'm not satisfied by this movie cause I've a lot of references about Indonesian history, and the independence also. But overall this movie are enough to fulfil publics knowledge with the general story about Indonesian and the popular issues about soekarno.
