Audience Reviews for Lewat Djam Malam (After the Curfew)

As his fiancee Norma(Netty Herawaty) waits patiently for him to return, Iskandar(A.N. Alcaff) has one last obstacle to avoid before he can safely be in her arms again in the persons of the soldiers he has to dodge for being out after curfew. However, that will soon seem easy compared to holding a job, so he and Norma can move out of her parents' house as soon as possible. But the job his future father-in-law gets for him almost immediately goes disastrously bad, as he is fired on the first day. So, Iskandar goes to look up an old resistance buddy who warns him not to go see Gunawan(R.D. Ismail), their former commanding officer. Which is of course the first thing he does.

As rough as it is in some spots, "After the Curfew," made in 1954, is still a compelling look at post independence Indonesia as seen through the eyes of one former freedom fighter. The question now for most is what kind of country they will live in, as there is an intriguing mix of western and traditional clothing on display. While for most people it seems the war never happened, even with the curfew, for Iskandar, a former student, it never stopped, as the movie deftly explores the universal and timeless themes of soldiers finding it hard to adjust back into civilian society which is helped by the movie's efficient use of noir influences.
