Pesantren: 3 doa 3 cinta (2008)
Three teenage boys face the challenges of growing up in this coming of age drama. Huda (Nicholas Saputra), Rian (Yoga Pratama) and Syahid (Yoga Bagus Satatagama) are three close friends who attend the same pesentren (religious boarding school) in Indonesia. While the school's principal Kyai Wahib (Brohisman) is a progressive Muslim who believes that his people should live in peace with Jews and Christians, Syahid harbors bitter feelings against Christians after real estate agents from the West cheated his father in a land deal, and he's increasingly sympathetic to the extreme Islamic views of one of his teachers, Ustadz (Doubleh Zulkanean). Meanwhile, Rian has lost his father and is considering following his example by opening a video store; he finds a mentor in Toha (Butet Kartaredjasa), who runs a traveling movie theater that's set up camp near the school. And Huda, who is trying to track down his mother who vanished near Jakarta, has fallen for Dona Satelit (Dian Sastrowardoyo), the pretty lead singer with a struggling rock band making a tour stop nearby. Huda wonders if Dona is taking advantage of him when she asks him to lend her some money, but he soon finds her story is more complicated than he imagined. 3 Doa 3 Cinta (aka Pesentren) was the first feature film from writer and director Nurman Hakim. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More
