FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis In frustration, a young woman calls out to her father, who stands no more than twenty feet away from her in a crowded mosque, Speak to me! I can't hear you! A teacher hands the anguished father a microphone, whispering, use this. She'll hear you when you use this. To the cheers of the crowd, the father speaks into the microphone, telling his daughter how much he loves her. This film brings this gentle humor to complex relationships between parents and children, and to social and religious issues of life in and around a Jakarta mosque, through the eyes and voices of children, and the powerful imagery of a prayer rug, young love and eggs.

REVIEWS

“For each new film, he seems to invent a new style, or even several new styles. Nugroho keeps rediscovering film . . . For his latest film, Nugroho consciously chose for a simple, fresh and comic style that is reminiscent of the heyday of Egyptian comedy.” –International Film Festival Rotterdam

“A gentle comedy of hopes and absences, Indonesian director Garin Nugroho’s latest film is a touching meditation on the idea that everyday expressions of love form the true basis of religious spirit and community . . . Nugroho weaves their stories into the hopes and frustrations of other characters in the market – a lovingly crafted studio set – giving his realistic fairy tale a rich sense of lives interconnected, and a world where even the smallest gestures of affection can bring welcome grace.” –San Francisco International Film Festival

“As memorable for its humanist warmth as it is for Nugroho’s deceptively light comedic touch . . . A fine film.” –Time Out London
