East meets west in this subtle romantic comedy when a handful of tourists and adventurers converge on the ruins of an old Indonesian port. Buzo moves away from satire to examine at a deeper level the ennui and alienation behind the laughter.
Includes an authoritative introduction by Frank Palmos, an Indonesian correspondent and interpreter for the president during the Sukarno era.
