A rarity well worth seeing

I saw 'After the Curfew' ('Lewat Djam Malam' in the Indonesian) at the 2012 London Film Festival, and it's a real rarity: an Indonesian film from 1953, set just after independence (granted just four years before). A former resistance fighter leaves the jungle and tries to take up the reins of his pre-revolution life, only to grow discouraged that the newly-independent country isn't the people's paradise he had been hoping for. The film is a bit preachy - even propaganda-y - at times; scenes of people enjoying a sing-song at a party go on far too long; and the continuity is a bit ropey (although the action is set over the course of just 24 hours, look carefully and you'll see the hero wears at least four different pairs of socks during it!) But for its novelty value alone this is worth seeing if you get the chance.

Rare and Worthwhile

Found this film at our local library on Blu-ray (recently restored by Criterion, thanks to the brilliant Martin Scorsese). It was enjoyable for the most part, well done, and in general worth a watch if you're looking to expand on the number of foreign films you've see. Moreover, if you're someone who's interested in Indonesian history or just history in general, you also might enjoy this and find it worth your time.
