huakaka.. bingung ya baca judul postingan di atas? iya basically I was trying to say 'what's going on with 'Ada Apa dengan Cinta?' ?? but the phrase is so confusing in Indonesian, ahaha.
for those who might not know about this movie, Ada Apa dengan Cinta (translated: What's Going On With Cinta) is an Indonesian movie of teenage-romance genre. It was released in 2002, and became such a hit by then. This movie is the debut movie of the main actor, Nicholas Saputra, who was only a 12th grader student when he filmed this. The movie is about Cinta (Dian Sastrowardoyo), a high school girl, and her relationship with Rangga (Nicholas Saputra). At first they hated each other but after they found their similiarity in their hobby (writing poetry) they became close and fall for each other. On the other hand, this brought a bad impact on Cinta's friendship with her clique.
One day Rangga asked Cinta to go out and when Cinta was about to leave the house, suddenly Cinta's friend, Alya (Ladya Cheryl) called her and told her that she really need to talk about her family problem. but Cinta lied to her by saying that she was about to go to the doctor and would visit Alya soon. Alya got really depressed by her parents' fight and tried to suicide because she couldn't take it anymore. The rest of the clique blamed Cinta for this though Alya could be saved.
Cinta then thought that her relationship with Rangga had changed her into a bad person, and told Rangga to leave her alone. While the friendship was getting better and better then, Cinta still felt empty. And when she confessed to her friends that she fell in love with Rangga, they found out that Rangga was about to board at the airport, and would fly to New York. Together with the girls, she rushed into the airport and finally met Rangga. They both confessed their feelings and kissed in the end before Rangga left her.
Phew.. what a long story.. but since this movie is not just another teenage movie, the poetries here are so excellent. Also some scenes and dialogues are really memorable. basically I like this movie so much and so do most people who ever watched it.
Now.. WHY DO I SUDDENLY TALK ABOUT THIS OLD MOVIE? well.. it all started with a little chit-chat with Angel and Dita about Nicholas Saputra, and we thought that this movie is one of his best appearance. He left a very good first impression as a newbie. In fact, I had never liked Indonesian actor so much before, untill I watched AADC and found him, and I really went so crazy about him. His acting skill is really great, and he has the charm that not every man has. well I honestly think that there are many people who are more handsome than him, but no Indonesian actor can beat his coolness and charm so far, at least for me.
Okay try search the movie on YouTube guys, I'm pretty sure you guys will love it too..
these are the famous poetries from the movie, written by Rako Prijanto.
Kulari ke hutan kemudian menyanyiku
Kulari ke pantai kemudian teriakku
Sepi… sepi dan sendiri aku benci
Ingin bingar aku mau di pasar
Bosan aku dengan penat
Enyah saja engkau pekat
Seperti berjelaga jika kusendiri
Pecahkan saja gelasnya biar ramai
Biar mengaduh sampai gaduh
Ada malaikat menyulam jaring laba-laba belang ditembok keraton putih
Kenapa tak goyangkan saja loncengnya biar terdera
Atau aku harus lari ke hutan belok ke pantai
Perempuan datang atas nama cinta
Bunda pergi karena cinta
Digenangi air racun jingga adalah wajahmu
Seperti bulan lelap tidur dihatimu
Yang berdinding kelam dan kedinginan
Ada apa dengannya
Meninggalkan hati untuk dicaci
Baru sekali ini aku melihat karya surga dalam mata seorang hawa
Ada apa dengan cinta
Tapi aku pasti akan kembali
Dalam satu purnama
Untuk mempertanyakan kembali cintanya
Bukan untuk siapa
Karena aku ingin kamu
Satu nafas terhembus adalah kata
Angan, debur, dan emosi tercampur
Dalam jubah terpautan
Tangan kita terikat... bibir kita menyatu
Maka setiap apa yang terucap
Adalah sabda pandita ratu
Di luar itu pasir
Di luar itu debu
Hanya pasir meniup saja lalu hilang
Terbang tak ada
Tapi kita tetap menari
Tarian cuma kita yang tahu
Jiwa ini adalah tandu
Duduk saja...maka akan kita bawa semua
Karena kita adalah satu..
I like the first one the best!
