4.0 out of 5 stars A Familial Bond Forged Between Strangers July 19 2016
By New Orleans gal - Published on

This is a beautifully executed tender Indonesian film. It tells the story of a down-and-out young prostitute/ singer who earnestly attempts to support her family, and the elderly ailing photographer who reluctantly takes her in. It is skillfully written and directed (Nan Achnas) and edited (Sastha Sunu) with exquisite photography (Yadi Sugandi) of sensuous landscapes, urban interiors and authentic characters. Religious symbols, rituals, and artifacts, including photographs, play an important visual and thematic role; but I was unable to identify which religion--possibly Taoism or Chinese folk religion as Mr Johan ( Lim Kay Tong), I think, is portrayed as Chinese-Indonesian. Also key is the belief that one must satisfy the promises to the ancestors before one dies. Tong's acting is solid, as is that of the other lead, Shanty, who plays Sita. This is not a film that races to the end. It's gait is slower, more restrained, but appropriately . A very good film, well worth a viewing.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great, except for problem with subtitles. July 31 2016

I enjoyed this film, even though I missed some of the dialog. I tried various settings of aspect ratio but I was unable to find a setting that allowed me to fully view the English subtitles, so there was some dialog that I missed out on. Despite that, I was still drawn in to the story line and I would like to see it again with subtitles being fully available to me. This is a well crafted film with great character development.

another good story quietly and effectively done. some people might be bored, but i was into this kind of story at the time and it didn't disappoint. another good human interest story showing normal human beings in normal human situations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving, low-key Indonesian study of a friendship April 16 2011
By KG - Published on
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).
