Full movie description "In the Absence of the Sun":GIA (32, played by Adinia Wirasti) returns home after living abroad for years. Calling Jakarta "home" is ironic as she experiences reverse culture shock. In a desperate attempt to latch on to her identity, Gia reunites with NAOMI (32, played by Marissa Anita), a lover from her past. Naomi reminds her of her old life; a life when everything was possible. What she doesn't expect is that Naomi has changed, that she has conformed to the societal norms of the city. INDRI (24, played by Ina Panggabean) wants to find a prince charming who will sweep her off her feet and serves her a silver platter. Her job as a towel girl in a local gym is not promising. She has to climb up the societal ladder with the only thing she can offer: her body. It is not prostitution; her body is her own, her right, regardless of how the society views it. She decides to meet with a prince charming through online dating, a place where identities are obscured. MRS. SURYA (48, played by Dayu Wijanto) has just lost her...
Reviews of the In the Absence of the SunIndonesian writer-director Lucky Kuswandi's new film 'In the Absence of the Sun' is a drama which takes place over a single night, intertwining 3 women's experiences in the capital city of Jakarta. The three women share a night out separately, each with their own stories to tell.
Gia (Adinia Wirasti) returns to Jakarta after years of living in New York, nobody knows why she's returned. She meets her old friend Naomi (Marissa Anita), and it soon becomes apparent how alien her home city now has become. Ci Surya (Dayu Wijanto) has lost her husband, and whilst coming to terms with her loss she inadvertently finds more about her husband than she cared to know. Indri (Ina Panggabean) works in a gym and has a date, and has dreams of joining the new moneyed classes created by Jakarta's commercial growth.
Kuswandi spends the first half of the film illustrating the way Jakarta has changed so dramatically, from the smog-infused streets full of cars and motorcycles, to people spending more time glued to their mobiles phones than socialising with each other. The rampant illusion of luxury and lifestyle, where everything is imported, has swarmed on the locals. Gia is astounded how fake and empty everything around her has become, to which Naomi replies "Things get easier when we pretend to be foreigners". She's returned to a city which has quickly lost its identity and soul, the question is has she made a big mistake coming back?
As the night unfolds and things don't go according to plan for any of the women, we start to learn more about their backgrounds and insecurities. All of various ages, each has their own sadness. They want to find their place in a city which is always on the move, to share experiences with someone who loves them for who they are. Each of their stories will resonate with you, Indri's awkward night out was probably the most touching.
'In the Absence of the Sun' is an ode to a capital city on fast-forward, being the most populous city in South-east Asia may create many new opportunities but it also creates just as many new problems. Welcome to Jakarta.
