A very good movie

11 years, 1 month ago at Sep 20 10:38
Since this movie was directed by Peter Weir, starring Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver, it sounded really promising and, on top of that, it was definitely one of the coolest titles I have came across. Eventually, the first thing I enjoyed about this movie is that it was dealing with a part of history  that I didn’t know at all.  Furthermore, the story was fairly realistic and quite spellbinding... read more

Guy Hamilton is a journalist on his first job as a foreign correspondent. His apparently humdrum assignment to Indonesia soon turns hot as President Sukarno electrifies the populace and frightens foreign powers. Guy soon is the hottest reporter on the story with the help of his photographer, half- Chinese dwarf Billy Kwan, who has gone native. Guy's affair with diplomat Jill Bryant also helps. Eventually Guy must face some major moral choices and the relationship between Billy and him reaches a crisis at the same time the politics of Indonesia does.

"How does a movie have a female dwarf play the role of a male dwarf and pull it off? Easy. Film it on the year of living dangerously. Mel Gibson, riding on a fast train to super stardom, teams up once again with fellow Aussie mate, director Peter Weir, along with another rising star, Sigourny Weaver, in the international melodrama depicting the Indonesia Coup of 1965. And I gotta admit, I'm one of those people who knew absolutely nothing about any Indonesian coup from the sixties until I saw"
