Of Love and Eggs (Rindu kami padamu)
Description: A censor-proof movie about a working-class community in Jakarta during the Lebaran holiday. Shot entirely in the studio, it recreates the tone, style and pastel hues of an Indonesian comedy from the heyday of the studio system. The large ensemble cast enacts a series of slight, interwoven storylines (the struggle to acquire a cupola for the mosque, classroom problems, the vicissitudes of first love and a variety of intrigues involving eggs), all of them haunted by poverty -- which is driving many to return to their home villages -- and by the threat of government-sanctioned demolition of slum areas.
