I would say this is a very progressive and symbolic approach for Indonesian standards. A sarcastic meeting second wife breaking apart family event during a quran group reading? Challenging and smart to say the least... Great shooting, very objective depicting life conditions and still keeping it beautiful. Yeah, this actress is amazing!
Más allá de abordar los problemas de la poligamia y mostar ese orden social legítimo que violenta los intereses de las mujeres dentro del matrimonio, podemos ver a una esposa cuyo conflicto más grande no es el hecho de que su esposo adquiera una nueva cónyuge sino la búsqueda de la individualidad que había perdido al dejar de ser persona y convertirse en esposa.
Nice casting and setting. The director had some great setups and ideas, but ultimately it fell flat with a lacklustre ending and some pretty unnecessary images of a BlackBerry texting for AGES. It took me out of the movie completely. I don't think I've every seen a long text get corrected and changes in the same take. Not justified at all. There's always a way to tell the same thing in a more cinematic way.
A man announces he is going to take a second wife expecting his Indonesian wife to play along and not upset the balance of things. Instead she finds her independence through her pride and perhaps brighter days lie ahead. Well made if slight short from Kamila Andini perhaps spelling promise of future endeavours.
A unique look on polygamy and single moms(married or divorced). Very good acting made this short-film worth watching. Diana and Rifki watching TV will make your day. The whole film was made sometimes as if it wanted us to be viewers, sometimes it wanted to involve us. Mostly it wanted us to follow Diana. In some scenes I could. In some I couldn't. But, it surely has a heart.
sloppy ... even film's lenght only 40 minutes ,director is showing us very bad cinematography. also there are weak metaphors , car washing scene etc. also we dont have to watch mobile messages everytime , where are actings ?it is very easy way to tell story with mobile messages .We have to understand situation with actings not reading messages. where is disproportionate violence against women? waste of time.
