Sang Pemimpi: A Sequel to Laskar Pelangi

I used to hate Indonesian films. Yes, hate is a strong word, but I really did. That was until I watched Laskar Pelangi and fell in love.

I fell in love with Gunnar Nimpuno’s cinematography, Riri Riza’s direction and the cute little boys from Laskar Pelangi. Now, they’re shooting the sequel to Laskar Pelangi – Sang Pemimpi.

One of my students, Dhimas, recommended me to read the books instead of watching the films. My first love is books, so I shall hunt Andrea Hirata’s series tomorrow at Johor and read them before the release of Sang Mimpi. I know it might cause harm to my review of the film, but essentially, a filmmaker – even an amateur – must read to widen her knowledge.

Here are some of the shots I got off Sang Mimpi’s Facebook fan page. Oh and they just started shooting two days ago!


I love this shot.


Guru yang kelihatan amat garang. I cannot be that kind of teacher.


A good way to punish students.




Scenes like these makes me wanna go back to school.


He kinda looks like Dato’ Rahim Razali. Fierce.

The release date is 17 December 2009, well, in Indonesia that is. To the crew of Sang Mimpi, please tell Riri Riza that I am a big fan and I wanna catch the premeire of the film although I am far away in Singapore.

I might as well fly off to the premeire for a short getaway, eh? Hmmm….

    hiii…i same like you…used to hate indonesian movies (the 90’s era) even i’m indonesian except the films on the 80’s era but now not anymore because now there are some good and full quality movies in indonesia just like ayat2 cinta, ketika cinta bertasbih 1 &2, laskar pelangi, sang pemimpi (coming), and i hope the next sequels Edensor and Maryamah Karpov, too. i have finished reading them. they are qualified and quality books of indonesian literature ever after Siti Nurbaya, Tenggelamnya Kapal Van der wijk, and di bawah lindungan Ka’bah (do you know these works?) ! believe me…so, enjoy andrea hirata’s works….piz…
