Product Description

Opera Jawa (Amazon.com Exclusive)

Setyo and Siti live a peaceful life as husband and wife, selling earthenware in their village. But when Setyo is called away on business, a flirtatious butcher, Ludiro, takes advantage of Siti's loneliness to seduce her. Tempted by song and dance, Siti initially refuses his advances but acquiesces in a moment of weakness, setting the stage for an epic battle between the two men.

Located in lush forests and on pristine beaches of Java, director Garin Nugroho bases his deeply imagistic and dazzling visual narrative on the The Abduction of Sita, from the Hindu epic, The Ramayana.

"A beautifully mounted musical epic combining traditional myths with contempo meditations on violence and social inequality, 'Opera Jawa' is bold and innovative… Choreography is often mesmerizing, especially when set within the precincts of a gorgeous seaside palace rising above the flat landscape."
–Variety

"Superbly conceived and performed, it's like nothing you've ever seen or heard."
-London Film Festival

Again, I am using bits and pieces of this video for my mythology class, so I am using only what I needed. It was a video I needed, not necessarily one I wanted or would go out and buy for myself.

Beautiful pictures, well-versed Javanese, well-written subs. Beautiful wayang-based metaphors. Can get too artsy/weird for some people at times, but it wasn't there for nothing--it was a theatrical/stylistic film (rather than narrative) after all.
