Usmar Ismail’s Tiga Dara is my all time favorite movie since I was a kid. The last time in 2012, I had a chance to re-watched this movie in Museum Bank Mandiri for ‘Lajar Tanjep’ which’s held by Ade Poernama. That time, the quality of the film was pretty bad, it got scratch everywhere, dirty, and dust. The sound was awful.
Few months later on June 2012, Lewat Djam Malam, another Usmar Ismail’s masterpiece got an opportunity to be screened in cinemas after a year restoration process in Laboratorium L’Immagine Ritrovata, Bologna, Italia. I wished Tiga Dara would also have a chance one day.
In 2015, my wish came true, ‘Tiga Dara’ won a golden ticket to get restorated at the same laboratory with its brother ‘Lewat Djam Malam’. After 17 months process, the movie finally has been screened start from few days ago on 11 August 2016 in cinemas.
The 4k quality is fantastic, it’s pretty clear and clean, the sound’s amazing. I can see all my favorite scenes clearly. Can’t wait for the Blu-ray DVDs released on next year.

Somehow my mango waffle with vanilla ice cream I just ate, brought me to Wong Kar Wai’s ‘My Blueberry Nights’ last scene. The one I keep coming back to because the entire film is meant to come up to this point. The kiss scene. The cuts to the blueberry pie with melting ice cream. Love found. Life accepted.
“Yes, it’s the guitar, but not always as we know it. Some of the instruments here are homemade, occasionally fantastic interpretations of the idea of a guitar, while others are the real thing. Either way, it’s the music that captivates, whether it’s “Stambul Naturil,” a surprising song that sounds as if it’s been plucked directly from Appalachia, or a tune that’s zoomed in from another planet like “Kolo Kot Matani.” What it illustrates perfectly is the global ubiquity of the guitar, and this often not only challenges our assumptions about the way it can be played, but offers a fascinating insight into music from the many places that make up Indonesia. It’s a record that continually defies preconceptions, throwing the listener firmly and uncompromisingly into another culture. “Sungguh Terpaksa” is almost primitive rock, and “Langgam Di Bawar Bulan Purnama” carries strong, lyrical echoes of Hawaii.”
