this has one of the best,chilling and haunting music score, also one of the most patriotic dialogue in Indonesian war film. Also the staggering performance and speech from Maruli Sitompul in the scene where he was tied into a pillar awaiting for his death.
An Indonesian classic epic. It's not just a movie about war between Indonesian people and Dutch armies. In my opinion, it's more psychological-drama. There's character study in it along with a great performance from its actors/actresses. The plot is simple, actually. But, writer/director Teguh Karya could make three-dimesional characters who had their own motivations so they had deep characterization.
