Dir/Writer: Adriyanto Dewo
Two Indonesian domestic helper in Hong Kong played a game at the pier. A game that can alter their lives and question their existence.
A very strong piece from the director who brought us Menunggu Warna (Waiting for Colors) from Sanubari Jakarta, Adriyanto Dewo. Showcasing what-ifs scenario that was brought out of despair and dead ends. The tragedy was apparent and heartbreaking. But the conclusion is actually more uplifting and brought a positive message instead, whenthe characters finally embracing the truth. I love little things in the films, something as simple as shots of the tumbling cups to represent what happening off the frame. The choice of the Bengawan Solo a classic indonesian kroncong tunes, writen by Gesang in the 1940.
