Amazingly rich work of art
First, I want to gently contradict one statement, often made of this film and repeated here. There ARE other movies like this. If you want to see a reasonable model of what Garin Nugroho has done, I would direct you to the work of Carlos Saura, especially “El Amor Brujo.” But that being said, the stunning richness of this movie far eclipses Saura at his best. There are visuals both large and small, dances both grand and intimate, songs both poetic and profane, and story-telling elements both epic and contemporary. The frame shifts rapidly between modern and ancient, between emotional and refined, and on and on.
Now, permit me to ask a question of any Indonesian readers. Who was the intended audience for this film? I ask because I am far more familiar with Javanese culture than most Americans, but found the cultural references and symbolism far deeper than I could catch. It made me think that this was created for a strictly Indonesian and a predominantly artistic/intellectual audience. But with its extensive European connections, is that right? Did he create it for people like me, educated artsy types the world over?
Unless you are a theater student, don’t waste your time
I went to watch this movie with a lot of excitement in the Estonian film festival but to my surprise the movie, presented in the style of opera, did not come close to my expectations. Even after knowing the story of Rama and Sita, I could not understand parts of the plot. It seemed the director had tried to put everything in one movie and somewhere forgot to connect the parts. A few scenes didn’t seem to have any connection with the movie. This is not my attempt to completely bash the film , I will also add that there were some good musical parts and dance sequences but still the movie couldn’t keep me or others watching the movie glued to the screen or even interested. Close to the end we were just looking at our watches to get out of the theater.
