Watching movies that I like, He/Him
Kamila Andini brings another masterpiece, telling a story about Nana as a woman living in West Java around '60. I love how this film tells the story mostly from the visuals, the scoring of course is one of the best I've heard in films. This film successfully brings about how hard women lived in that era when political turmoil happen.

Full of an All-star cast and directed by one of the best directors in this era. Koreeda always has a high sensitivity when writing a story about family. Here, he brings us a story about characters that are already broken.
The premise is simple actually, police chasing an illegal baby adoption perpetrator, but Koreeda succeeds in bringing a story about chosen family, gender power imbalance, and the dark side of child adoption.
Every shot is fantastic and beautiful, my favorite…
Yuni is an important film to all women worldwide, especially Indonesian women. Kamila Andini shows us how hard it is to live as a woman in a place that still believes in a patriarchal culture and a place where child marriage is still being normalized. Not only that, but this film also shows us how LGBTQ+ people are still being oppressed in Indonesia and critics to lack of sex education in Indonesia.
