Love For Sale

Richard Achmad (Gading Marten) has been on his own for too long. To the extent that his close friends challenged Richard to take the couple to the wedding of one of them.

Slowly, the pair’s courtship develops into something unhealthy due to Yudhis’ possessive nature.

Why You Should Watch It:
At first glance, Possessive looks like an Indonesian film about the love of ordinary teenagers. But in the story, there are things that are rarely revealed in Indonesian films: toxic relationships that are very likely to occur in romance stories, and violence that can occur in the family.

What’s Wrong With Love

Cinta (Dian Sastrowardoyo) seems to have a perfect life. He had a family that loved him, then friends who were always there for him, as well as the attention of famous men at his school. But then he meets Rangga, a smart but very cool man at his school. The meeting then changed many things for Love.
Why You Should Watch It:

A legendary Indonesian film whose story is (it feels) timeless. If you were too small to remember the epic story between Rangga (Nicholas Saputra) and Cinta (Dian Sastrowardoyo), now you can watch it again streaming.

Before The Devil Picks Up

The children of the Lesmana family are reunited after a long time apart. They gathered in an old family-owned house, away from the crowds. In this house, too, lies the mystery of their father’s horrific death. At the gathering, Alfie (Chelsea Islan), Maya (Pevita Pearce), Ben (Samo Rafael), and Laksmi (Karina Suwandi) try to find out what happened to their father. The effort turned out to be an endless terror for them.

Why You Should Watch It:
Endless terror throughout the film plus Pevita Pearce and Chelsea Islan bathe in blood and mud. What an epic horror movie. No wonder this Indonesian film also managed to reach 1 million viewers in 2018.

Letter from Prague

Larasati (Julie Estelle) must go to Prague to fulfill her mother’s will, which is to deliver a box and a letter to Jaya (Tio Pakusadewo). He had to get Jaya’s signature in order to get an inheritance from his mother, a mission that turned out not to be easy. Larasati and Jaya’s relationship then develops and reveals the story of the past between Jaya and his mother who are separated due to political conditions.

Why You Should Watch It:
Rarely can we see Indonesian films related to politics presented against the backdrop of the beautiful city of Prague. The dark history of Indonesia’s political past that led many Indonesians to be expelled from their own country is raised in this story, and makes it richer than romance films with extraordinary foreign settings.


The story revolves around the lives of the three main characters, Meimei (Cut Mini), Andien (Aida Nurmala), and Sakti (Tora Sudiro). The three have their own problems: Meimei has an uneasy relationship with her husband because she does not have children, Andien is cheated on by her husband, while Sakti only realizes that she is gay. Their lives are more complex when Nino (Surya Saputra) is present and dating Sakti, while Meimei also likes Nino without knowing that he is his own best friend’s lover.

Why You Should Watch It:
Arisan! was the first Indonesian film to dare to raise the theme of homosexuality in its story, and its slick presentation made it a clean sweep of six major awards at the Indonesian Film Festival (FFI). Revolutionary!

The Sinking of Van Der Wijck’s Ship

Zainuddin (Herjunot Ali) sails back to his father’s hometown of Batipuh, Padang Panjang. There he meets Hayati (Pevita Pearce) and falls in love with her. Unfortunately customs hinder their love.

Why You Should Watch It:
The sinking of van Der Wijck is a high-cost epic film due to its extraordinary efforts to bring the atmosphere of the 1930s to life. The story based on Buya Hamka’s novel of the same name is certainly also unquestionable. Pevita Pearce and Herjunot Ali were awarded the Outstanding Actor and Outstanding Actress award at the 2014 Bandung Film Festival.

Forbidden Doors

Gambir, a successful sculptor who specializes in sculptures of pregnant women, apparently keeps a dark secret behind the statues he made. The secret was kept together by his wife, Talyda, who fully supported Gambir’s career. The secret then led to various mysteries and strange things that happened around Gambir, making Gambir’s life changed.

Why You Should Watch It:
Pintu Terlarang is arguably one of the best films ever made by Joko Anwar. This Indonesian film was selected and screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2009, and was awarded best of Puchon at the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival in South Korea in 2009.
