Deze voorstelling maakt deel uit van Rialto Filmclub met als gastspreker deze maand Ernst-Jan Pfauth.

Ajo is a fighter who fears nothing, not even death. His raging urge to fight is driven by a secret — his impotence. When he crosses paths with a tough female bodyguard named Iteung, Ajo gets beaten black and blue, but also falls head over heels in love. A rocky yet sweet romance blossoms between Ajo and Iteung, sending them on a journey of genre-defying proportions. Edwin’s latest film, the first Indonesian film to win the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, unabashedly mocks the follies of machismo, but it nonetheless stands on its own as a cinematic triumph, at once a black comedy, a cheeky romance, and an action film guaranteed to have your heart racing.
