The world of Indonesian cinema has experienced many ups and downs to date. Foreign films still dominate our cinema screens, but the increase in national film production in recent years also needs to be appreciated. Yeah the plot is a lot of stories that resemble FTV and the players seem like that-that's it. But at least from a number of these productions, there are some quality films to be proud of. But unfortunately, quality films that precisely can often appreciation from outside than in their own country. Even these quality films are not only rarely get a short share in theaters.
