    A beautiful portrayal of a Sundanese woman who lived during a political conflict in 60s. Her story of struggles and hard decisions she needs to take are well delivered through an assembly of talented casts, great direction, and beautiful cinematography and scoring. Too bad I didn't get to experience it first on a big screen.

    A visually pleasing sequel that will answer some questions you had and leave you with more.

    The film opens with a very strong scene, setting the mood just right. Interesting that the story starting to connect with Indonesian history at the time. Joko successfully brings back every fan-favorite bit from the first film without making it boring. Unfortunately the film doesn't end as strong as the setup. Well, but we are finally able to see Ical Tanjung's beautiful cinematography on IMAX.

    Can we put aside "yaudah sih Jen" for a while? Because the same "Jen" just co-wrote one of the most well-written piece in Indonesian cinema.

    Not as complicated as Edwin's usually be, yet it flows really well through natural dialogues and interesting shots of food. Surprisingly, the comedy works and proves such film doesn't need 'Youtubers' to be funny and great casts is the key. Nicholas Saputra and Dian Sastro also shows their true quality. The only thing that disturbed me is Palari's classic mistake which is the audio dubbing. Surely will watch it again to catch more details.
