Ekskul and all its crew can go to hell! This IS the BEST INDONESIAN FILM of 2006!!!!
10 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I just got the opportunity to watch this movie on VCD, and it was such a splendid time.

I can definitely say that comparing this film with such a highly pretentious horse s**t as 'Ekskul' was like comparing Heaven and Hell! ('Berbagi Suami' as Heaven, of course...) I honestly can't understand what the FFI-committee thought when they picked Ekskul as Best Picture. Furthermore, that horse s**t also won Best Director!! Oh, come on, give me a f**king break, will you?! Giving a 'Best Director' award to a director that, apparently, disliked 'The Godfather'?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! They should have given the award for Picture and Director to this movie, instead! Berbagi Suami is an earnest, simple film about three families adopting a polygamy way of life, and many consequences (not a few are dire ones) that they have to face. It is funny at times, heartbreaking, and will bring smiles to all the audiences.

Maybe the members of the FFI committee are just too cheesy to pick a film as beautiful as this one.
