Perfection

This story involves two main characters, a young chef and a beautiful woman, who seems to have a perfect day, as always. The restaurant-the only setting of the movie-captures their perfect day, especially today, when these two strangers put themselves to the test of their perfect life.

 

Everyday, Daffa, the young chef, always having his perfect day. In his small restaurant, we can see the perfect from people’s smile around the corner, enjoying Sayur Asem and sharing laugh while eating. Everybody loves his cook, and can’t get enough of it.

 

The perfect woman, Sophie, enter the restaurant, so elegance. People staring at her, amazed her. It makes the perfect day more perfect. Until Sophie can’t enjoy the Sayur Asem normally. She put spices, more and more, over and over, then finally enjoy the Sayur Asem.

 

Daffa, who always watched the first reaction of after his consumer swallowing the first spoon of his Sayur Asem, shocked. Nobody ever treat his Sayur Asem like Sophie did. He suddenly feels miserable. His perfect day is over.

 

While we believe that Daffa is recovering him self from shocking, we see Sophie, sitting calmly alone with her food in the corner, look amazingly perfect, as always, and suddenly cry.

‘Til Death Do Us Part

Wife sits alone. She remember moments, beautiful moments, of her wedding day.

Wife remember today, the preparation for the wedding anniversary dinner, with her Husband.

 

Then, a very romantic dinner set in the backyard.

 

Husband whispers love through Wife’s ears.

Wife touches husband under the table.

Both says love, whisper forever to each other, just… unbreakable.

 

She poured another glass of wine and intensively savor every sips of it.

 

That’s when she remember, weird ways of Husband acts lately.

Phone calls in the middle of night, whispers over the phone when she slept,

a new way of he dress up lately, weird bills for things she never accepted,

and finally, she remember a visit of a woman, just this morning,

holding a picture of a baby, Husband’s baby.  

 

it was quite for a moment

 

And then we can hear the sound of her wedding ring clicking with the empty glass of wine.  

Sounds of clapping hands on the wedding day, when Husband romantically whispered,

‘Til death do us part’, …

 

—We slowly see Husband’s dead body near the dinner table, lying rigid and cold.

News Flash: Foreigners appreciated my work more. And it’s not about the money.

In 2011, I worked for 2 TV programs, for Denmark TV. I was just a Fixer/Stringer. Someone who assigned to assist their jobs in Indonesia. I’m just one person, contributing what I can contribute to them, for the good sake of their programs.

Several days before the premieres, casts and producers sent me an FB messages, let me know that the program will be screening on TV soon and once again told me how they feel blessed for each of their experiences in Indonesia. All the materials are in Danish language. But they shared them anyway.

Just now one of the cast told me, that he will genuinely help to get me a copy of the program, so the people involved in the team will able to watch the program.

I also worked in an Indonesian Film after that. I met a great team, finally get a chance to work with my long-time-idolized Indonesian Film Director, but I resigned 2 weeks before the job is finished, simply because my own team practice corruption. The movie just released the official trailer, just now, they tagged people-even those who didn’t involved in the production-, but not me. Or my PA who were resigned also. They didn’t share anything with me, no one.

It’s clear to me now. It’s not about the money, or the hard work requires, or any other excuses they may mention one or another way. Foreigners have more appreciation about my works, even though all I did was just making sure they have their lunch on time.

My guardian angel (foreigner, again) told me tonight, “..if they doing corruptions, they don’t mentioned you anymore, you should feel good, that you’re not a part of that corrupt team, and Thank God, you did the right thing resigned from the job. So you have no reason to feel sad, abandoned, or feel bad about. Be proud of other jobs you’ve done, don’t worry about the other one. It’s clearly not worthed.”

Good night, dreamers. May God bless us all the way ^_^
