HASH(0xa46bd4d4) out of 5 stars A slow yet gentle film that explores the various facets of human existence Feb. 1 2015
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
I love the fact that I can scroll through Amazon's Prime film offerings and come upon gems like this 2007 Indonesian film, "The Photograph". Directed by Nan Achnas, this film stars Shanty as Sita, a young woman who works in a karaoke bar and also moonlights as a prostitute. She struggles to eke out a living so that she can support her young child and mother back in her village. Abused and hounded by her pimp, Sita moves out of her old place and rents a spare room in an old portrait photographer's place. The photographer, played by veteran Singaporean actor, Lim Kay Tong, and Sita form a close bond and the movie explores how their relationship impacts both of their lives.

The film comes with English subtitles and as someone who speaks Indonesian (thanks to growing up and living in the region), I can say that for the most part the translation is sufficient. Also, this film moves at a really slow pace and is not meant to be watched in a hurry - the gestures, facial expressions, body language, all work in tandem to enhance the storytelling. I watched this on an early Sunday morning while all the other members of my family were asleep, and I was able to fully immerse myself in the movie. It is a little gem of a film (obviously filmed on a low budget) that explores human relationships and how everyday people struggle with issues of identity and existence as they go through the motions of getting by in this often cruel and unforgiving world. Recommended.

HASH(0xa46bd8dc) out of 5 stars Good movie. June 7 2014
By Sock Puppet - Published on Amazon.com
A young prostitute and sometimes singer, working to support her family. rents a spare room from an aging photographer and slowly learns the mystery of his life. A close relationship is formed, based on one's need for the other. The actors play their parts well, the story is believable, and the photography is excellent.
HASH(0xa46bd954) out of 5 stars Interesting and thoughtful Jan. 1 2015
By chef momma - Published on Amazon.com
This what I consider a 'quiet' movie - laid back, emotional, getting into the minutae of everyday lives, seeing what makes the characters behavior. Thoroughly enjoyed it, although it did seem to take a bit to "get off the ground" storywise in the beginning.

HASH(0xa46bdce4) out of 5 stars Moving, low-key Indonesian study of a friendship April 16 2011
By K. Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Touching, if a bit melodramatic, this Indonesian film about the growing friendship between a prostitute
hiding from her violent pimp and a dying portrait photographer weighed down by a lifelong secret is lovely
to look at, gentle, with a good heart. It's film I wish I loved even more.

The intentions are wonderful, but the tendency to go over the top with the acting (especially the old man),
and the fact you could see where the story was heading for quite a while kept a lid on my enthusiasm. So
did the emotional distance of the style and very slow pace (and I love slow movies). All that said, it was good
enough that I will see it again, and discover if it pulls me in deeper next time, knowing ahead of time the
very low-key approach to the story, and the slightly heightened performances (an odd, interesting contradiction there).
HASH(0xa46bdd14) out of 5 stars An underated beautiful sybolic movie Jan. 2 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A great symbolic movie which presents conflicting human emotions in a very beaitiful soft but questioning manner. I enjoyed the movie which focuses on dimensions of love.
