ADA APA DENGAN CINTA 2 | #AADC2
Sunday, May 8, 2016


Apa kabar hari ini?
Lihat tanda tanya itu,
jurang antara kebodohan,
dan keinginanku memilikimu sekali lagi.

-Rangga
I personally love this movie so much, I have seen it twice. And probably I could watch this movie again, any time. The chemistry of Nicholas Saputra and Dian Sastrowardoyo were so off-the-charts.

And I was really glad that the second part delivered as I'd hope. 14 years of  waiting after "Ada Apa Dengan Cinta" was first released in 2002. I was at that time, 16 years of age, definitely worth the wait. 




The execution of the movie pushed all the right buttons for me. The cinematography was great, every scene is shot with purpose. And Indonesia in particular Jogjakarta, where the movie was mainly filmed, is so beautiful. Full of vibrant colours and Jogja really has an awesome view of nature, at its best. 

Apart from the fact that AADC2 is totally nostalgic and it brings everyone back in time, what I like the most about this new sequel is the acknowledgement that time has passed. Everyone is looking at a different perspective now because time really flies and it simply means growth; a little bit older, a little more wiser. 




And what gets to me most, Rangga back then was already intense with his so deep looking eyes and those pair of eyes are still... the same. Sigh. Ganteng bangat. He looks like one lonely soul searching for something and trying to go back to one place he always wanted; home. It is the place where the heart is, where his Cinta is.

The characters came to life through the story, the way they acted, made decisions, loved, lost and lived, they seem all so real. And I really love the friendship between Cinta and her friends, so sooo genuine and loyal. 




True enough, somehow I think art imitates life, how all of us in one way or another feel that we can never move on from that one person from our past, the one who is now a stranger to us. Very, very relatable. 
Kadang-kadang, kau fikir mudah mencintai semua orang daripada melupakan satu orang.Jika ada orang telanjur menyentuh inti jantungmu mereka yang datang kemudian hanya menyentuh kemungkinan.
-Rangga
AADC2 is primarily a love story and on that premise, it definitely delivered. Highly recommended!

Well, when it's meant to be, it's meant to be.
Back then, and now.
