The movie version of a great book by Andrea Hirata is on Theater by now. Have you guys watched it? Which one's better, the book or the movie version?

The story is great but the way he wrote the novel, the plot etc is sometimes confusing. I have no chance to watch this movie because when it was launched I am not in Indonesia. I am still waiting for the original DVD to come out in the market. Honestly, I don't want to buy the illegal copy of the DVD but I will have no choice if the original DVD is not out in the market.

I have neither read nor watched the movie! Is it still being played in theater in Indonesia? I'd love to catch the show when I'm back. I have only watched the trailer online. And I think that the story is a good reminder to us who can afford to go to school, or have good access to education, that we should be more grateful and not forget that there are many people who, in this era, still do not have the money or the access to have proper education. Thanks for bringing up this discussion.

uhhuh..ive watched it lol with all of my families lol. but i didnt read the book, coz im not really a reader i cant stand reading a thick book loool. there's a goodness inside that movie, a spirit to keep on study and acknowledge ourself whether if we live in a poor life and to have a dream to make it come true. n for those who live in wealthy live, shud be more respect to others who live in poverty but still wanting to study at school. have a great sunday my Indo mates lol..
