Laskar Pelangi has become a public attention right now. Unfortunately, i am the outsider. Its trilogy has been missed in my read list. Even my friends persuaded me reading them.... They said, those books are so great, etc.. etc... but i keep in my chair. I dont know why....
Just like other best seller books, then Laskar Pelangi is made its movie version. Public has been waiting this movie. May be they expected their imagination while reading this novel seems to become real.
Since early of October (or September?), this movie has been aired in cinema. I have a little bit intention to watch it and i did it yesterday. Moreover, my colleagues invited me. So... there i was. Since my first step in the cinema, i just had no clues at all about this movie. So i was there like a virgin in the first night of marriage life (hahahaa... what a perfect term...).
As the movie takes 1970's as its setting, i am quite familiar with it. Bang Rhoma, Tancho pommade hair cream, that bicycle, fashion style, hair style, etc are some examples. When i reflect it to myself.. all i can do just laughing or at least smiling.
About the movie, i think it was quite intertaining. Laugh and smile could be generated not by a comedy scene. Furthermore.. sometimes i think i laughed at the satire. At some parts i felt a little bit boring.
For the castings, i really like Ikranegara and Cut Mini. I am also amazed by Mahar. I like the way he is acting.
