A very heartwarming movie. And it is very rare for us Indonesians to talk about such subject. Being single (or in Indonesian term: jomblo) is regarded as being socially impaired. The point is, many of these secluded singles do not have a chance to practice their social skill, hence, the idea of "love service company" that provides them a chance to learn about the intimate relationship is a great way to run the plot. Richard's character development was unfolded steadily throughout the movie, and by the end, the movie provoked a meaningful question about the value of self-discovery and self-compassion before falling in love. Oh, and BTW, every shot in this movie is so damn good!
