Critic Reviews for Red & White (Merah Putih)
This cliché-ridden war story from Indonesian director Yadi Sugandi suggests that the Dutch occupation of Indonesia in the post-war period played out like a tawdry TV movie made with the help of a dressing-up box and lots of fake blood and fireworks.
The historical events may be little known but everything else from the swelling score to the cardboard characters feels all too familiar.
In the end it resorts to slow-motion violence, confirming its mediocrity.
The subject is fascinating, but the approach is flawed.
With the score swelling ludicrously every time the leads so much as scratch their heads, this would-be creation myth falls flat on its face.
