What started as - what I thought was - Indonesia's answer to Amelie Poulain (cute girlie girl, nice music, pretty colors), turned out to be an impressive thriller. Fiksi is the story of Alisha, a girl haunted by her past, looking for love. Not knowing how to express that, obsession gets hold of her. It drives her to find the endings to the stories that Bari, the sexy writer with a continuous writer's block, tries to put on paper. The stories of their lives are however the most dramatic ones. Great movie, I especially like the photography and the music.

Looked for a subtitled trailer, but no luck yet. The movie has subtitles though :)
