Gie | 2004
Gie was a central yet unknown activist/writer who lived in Indonesia in the sixties. His life was a clash between the high drama of national political events and the small world of friendship and romance. He falls apart when he sees that his constant battle for justice and truth gives labor to another dictatorial regime, and caused the massacre of millions suspected communists, including his childhood friend. As time passes the people around him adjust to the new regime, but he continues to fight. His uncompromised idealism drives people away. His best friends leave him and the woman he loves rejects him. Only beauty of nature can rescue and free him.
