HABIBIE AINUN, The recent less love story
One of the most popular romantic melodrama movies
by a young director, Faozan Rizal, has break record of the most watched movie
in theater. The movie which based from B.J habibie’s biography “HABIBIE & AINUN”, are starring by Reza Rahardian as Habibie, and Bunga citra Lestari as Ainun.
The story of this movie, which based of BJ
habibie’s biography began with the first met of Rudy Habibie and Ainun when
they were in high school. As the two smartest students, their teachers and
friends were often making fun of them and told her that she looked like palm
sugar because she has dark skin. When they were graduated, Rudy work as an
engineer from Germany and Ainun work as a pediatrician
Ainun, though she had many admirers, but
the one she loved the most was only Rudy. After married a few months later at
12 May 1962, Rudy returned to Germany with his wife. The power of their love
made them survived and fought until they had their established position. Bad
thing appeared suddenly when a doctor told Ainun that she got ovarian cancer,
fortunately she can survived. Rudy as a genius person of Indonesia had a big
dream to make plane for his country. This big dream then came true. Rudy made
IPTN (industri pesawat terbang nusantara) in 1974.
His career in Indonesia increased from time
to time, but not easy at all, and his big dream came true through Gatotkoco in
1995. In 1998 crisis happened in Indonesia and student demanded president Soeharto to step down. Rudy
then was appointed to replace Soeharto, but it was not long before people
accused him of corruption until he decides not to run for president again. In
all that times, Ainun was always there to support him, to be his medicine, to
be his shoulder for him to lean and to cry together.
Happiness returned to their life, but
unfortunately the ovarian cancer in ainun appeared again and even more severe. Until
the time she couldn’t survive like before. Rudy did everything to save the life
the woman he loved the most, but nothing he could do when death came.
This movie is not only showing the romance
between prof. Habibie and his wife, but
also showing the political condition of Indonesia at that time. Indonesia also
can see how the people in Germany have a great respect to prof. Habibie, while Indonesia
appointed him did corruption.
Although the acting and makeup of Reza rahardian and bunga
citra lestari are great, but their body gesture when being old doesn’t fit.
They only had old face but the body just like young people. And as Ainun, Bunga
citra lestari doesn’t fit for the image of Java oriental woman like ainun.
Overall, this movie contains a very nice
love story. By this movie, we could see that the real true love is not Romeo
and Juliet who tragically suicide to keep their love to each other, but Habibie
and Ainun who
grew old together and separated by destiny of death. This movie is a great
movie in the end of 2012, but I think this movie will get more moviegoers if
release right on Valentine’s Day.
