Description
 

Of Love and Eggs (Rindu kami padamu)
A film by Garin Nugroho

Indonesia, 2004 (90 minutes)

Synopsis
In frustration, a young woman calls out to her father, who stands no more than twenty feet away from her in a crowded mosque, Speak to me! I can't hear you! A teacher hands the anguished father a microphone, whispering, Use this. She'll hear you when you use this. To the cheers of the crowd, the father speaks into the microphone, telling his daughter how much he loves her. This film brings this gentle humor to complex relationships between parents and children, and to social and religious issues of life in and around a Jakarta mosque, through the eyes and voices of children, and the powerful imagery of a prayer rug, young love—and eggs.
