  • DenoResandono's rating of the film Bridegroom’s Bed

    What can I say about RANJANG PENGANTIN? Well, I would say this is one the great movie from the legendary director Teguh Karya. At first, I thought RANJANG PENGANTIN is just merely a love story or a movie about marriage. Well, it's true. But, this movie is gloomy and depressing, I mean very depressing. It would be great if RANJANG PENGANTIN has a longer runtime. Because some parts felt rushed. It's a great movie...
