3doa_3cinta_poster_preview

akhirnya, film yang aku cari-cari dvdnya bisa aku tonton. dan diberi kesempatan untuk mereviewnya. what a gift.

sewaktu diputar di bioskop, aku masih di padang, dan saat kembali ke jakarta, sudah tidak diputar lagi di bioskop. itu bulan desember 2008. dan sekarang awal Juli 2009, dvdnya baru dirilis.

beragam kabar mengenai film ini sudah aku dengar. seorang teman pencinta film bilang, bagus. ada kritikus bilang dipajangnya foto dian sastro dicover hanya untuk komersil. sementara, tokoh utama, semestinya adalah tiga santri ; Huda (Nicholas Saputra), Rian (Yoga Pratama) dan Sahid (Yoga Bagus).

terlepas dari itu semua, mesti diakui film ini kutaroh di urutan film indonesia wajib tonton. diantara fiksi.gie. janji joni.

nurman hakim

bagaimanapun, sosok satu ini tidak bisa dilupakan begitu saja. ialah dalang dibalik suksesnya film yang menjadi pilihan berbagai ajang film festival internasional ini. seorang penulis skenario, sutradara serta produser.

pengalaman dan pendalamannya terhadap materi pesantren, cukup mumpuni. tema saling respect dan understanding sangat tepat ditunjukkan di saat berbagai konflik seputar agama, khususnya Islam mulai merebak. tidak hanya di indonesia, tapi juga di belahan dunia, ketika isu terorisme menyerang wtc yang dikenal 9/11. amerika serikat seakan menyatakan perang terhadap islam. aliran islam garis keras atau ekstrim dianggap teroris. yang minoritas ini menjadi generalisasi kaum muslim.

maka kemudian nurman menghadirkan sahid sebagai penggiring cerita ekstrimisme islam ini. sebagai kaum minoritas.tak pelak, ketiga tokokh utama pun ditangkap hanya karena kewaspadaan terlalu tinggi akan terorisme. meski tidak cukup bukti untuk itu.

maka, huda dan rian menjadi pelengkap kehidupan anak santri. huda yang merindukan ibu dihubungkan dengan dona satelit yang dimainkan Dian Sastro. NIlai komersil poin ini wajib agar tidak melulu soal islam. dan kehadiran nico dan dian jelas memberi nilai plus film ini.

plot yang dibangun nurman mengalir dengan baik. polemik tiga tokokh dihadirkan selangseling dengan bumbu kehidupan para santri. termasuk menampilkan orientasi seksual sesama jenis, yang konon biasa terjadi di pesantren.

nico dan dian

sukses ada apa dengan cinta, menjadikan nico dan dian idola secepat kilat. kehadiran mereka kembali dalam satu scene seperti menunggu kembalinya leonardo dicaprio dan kate winslet pasca titanic di film revolutionary road.

chemistry keduanya kembali dituntut lewat peran huda dan dona satelit. huda memanfaatkan dona untuk impiannya bis abertemu ibu di jakarta. sementara dona kemudian membutuhkan bantuan huda untuk merekam videonya sebagai syarat seleksi casting. jadilah adegan record dian berakting di sebuah jembatan menjadi adegan yang menarik. konon, di sejumlah festival internasional, adegan ini mampu mengundag tawa penonton meski tidak dimenegrti bahasanya.

adegan tersebut memang kocak dan ironi. dian dengan berbagai gaya, berakting sambil direkam oleh nicholas yang mesem-mesem. lihatlah wajah dian kala berakting ala sinetron. untuk adegan ini, dian berhasil.
yang mencuri perhatian

yoga pratama. yup. aktor yang dulunya sudah berkecimpung di dunia televisi ini kembali berakting dalam film ini sebagai rian, mendampingi nicholas. aktingnya yahud. natural dan pantaslah kalau ia mendapat penghargaan pemeran pendukung terbaik dalam FFI 2008.

Yoga benar-benar mencuri perhatian disetiap adegan yang menuntut perannya. bahkan, nicholas pun mesti memberi kesempatan buat aura cowok satu ini.

all in all, tidak hanya materi yang kuat, nurman berhasil membawa para aktornya menjadikan film ini begitu kuat. masa depan film indonesia makin menjanjikan dengan bertambahnya sutradara dan penulis skenario yang bagus. Selain menunggu karya-karya berikutnya dari para sutradara yang mencerahkan film Indonesia, seperti riri riza, nia dinata, joko anwar, hanung bramantyo, dan mouly surya.*

Fiction.

Obsession made Nightmares

Promising movie. By taking a new way of direction, this movie promises to become a good movie. The use of many valuable picture rather than dialog made this movie conclude as one of the great Indonesian movie in 2008.

This is the movie about a girl named Alisha (Ladya Cheril) with her traumatic experience when she is a child. Her pregnant mother shoots herself in front of Alisha. Her father ignores her. No brotherhood. She is hopeless. Many pressures made her choose to follow her lust and desire. She moves into an apartment, next to a man’s room, named Bari (Donny Alasmyah) who she knows when he works at her house.

Her obsession of Bari’s love made her become a psychopath. She dares to do anything to give the solution of Bari’s problem, who can not finishing his stories. That is the story begins. Alisha is “trying” to completing Bari’s stories, by making everything happen through her hands.

Alisha’s obsession becoming nightmares and she act like a psychopath. One by one, people at the apartment die, and it has related to Alisha. Rudy, who hide his gay son from her mother die by gun. Dirah, an old lady do suicide when she found her kitten lost, which are throwing away by Alisha. An old hopeless man is pushing from fifth floor by Alisha. Last, she hits Renta, Bari’s girlfriend.

Directed by Mouly Surya, this movie criticizes through gender issue with talks the dreams of the girls, by using many symbols like dolls, or voices of couple dolls. Even this is her first films, Mouly explores many kinds of the way of shooting, such as long shoot, close up shoot, and completely by symbolic scenes.

INSPIRING MOVIE

Since i am interested in english, this movie inspiring me a lot about increasing my english language ability.

this movie also educate me to keep the spirit whatever happen. even a 11 year old girl (black american) can be a winner in Scripps National Spelling Bee. Her effort and the condition surround touch my stomach.

wanna check more about this movie can visit this adrees :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akeelah_and_the_Bee

or

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0437800/

“Eleven year-old Akeelah Anderson’s life is not easy: her father is dead, her mom ignores her, her brother runs with the local gangbangers. She’s smart, but her environment threatens to strangle her aspirations. Responding to a threat by her school’s principal, Akeelah participates in a spelling bee to avoid detention for her many absences. Much to her surprise and embarrassment, she wins. Her principal asks her to seek coaching from an English professor named Dr. Larabee for the more prestigious regional bee. As the possibility of making it all the way to the Scripps National Spelling Bee looms, Akeelah could provide her community with someone to rally around and be proud of — but only if she can overcome her insecurities and her distracting home life. She also must get past Dr. Larabee’s demons, and a field of more experienced and privileged fellow spellers”

Trust me.this movie promise u a thing.

FULLY COMMERCIAL MOVIE

yeah. this movie reaffirm what indonesia movies are; just as commercial not to educate even inspire people who watch it.

This movie seem to introduce the new genre of music: Malay bollywood. Maybe we can conclude this movie as musical movie. but, it too poor and weak in cinematography. Also the act of the actors.

This movie tells about Wulan (Titi Kamal) as superstar singer that has a contract with her management; no married. BUt actually, she has married with a man called Rudy (Christian Sugiono). The lie made another and another lies.

Suddenly, i do not want to talk much about this movie. since it’s just a piece of cake. sweet for awhile and then gone. nothing.

irony

many children without sandals when i was in the bus today.

girls, boys.

wearing blur t shirts and pants

begging the money from ‘lucky’ people in the bus and surround the traffic light.

what a pity!

do the minister or president ever come and see what happen? or they just ignore even they have known?
