This seemingly inglorious position isn't so necessarily (take Béroul's enthralling and alert "Tristan"!).
Men and their egos…Still, I couldn’t get enough of the scene in which Eko danced in longing and frustration, accompanied by Slamet Gundono who sang: Sirna…lenyap…(oh, now I wish I could speak Javanese! :D)
I have never seen anything like this before, how is Garin Nugroho make this film by combinate the elements of a stage drama society or cultural to be a very interesting movie and the traditional music is also very fantastic!!
