Perempuan Berkalung Sorban



"Perempuan Berkalung Sorban" is the latest Indonesian movie based on the novel written by Abidah El Khaliqy, a story about the journey of a girl name Anissa, in her search for freedom,love and justice in womens right and the sacrifice she made to achieve her dreams. Living in a strong islamic community brought her to difficulties to achieve her dreams but her strong will and passion has finally brought trust from her family and community to accept the changes.




I've just watched this movie on DVD last night. It's been a good thing that more religious movies were made to show the beauty of islam. But Unfortunately, if the movie was not done in the right way, it could just meddle the perception people have on what islam really is. I applaud to the good choreography of the movie but the message sent from it, has somehow, from my opinion, were quite misleading in an indirect way. Maybe this is exactly what is happening there but I do not agree with the opinion made of how they use the Quran and the rules of Allah made to such strong reason that its as if what a man says is always right.

I am not a feminist nor do I disagree that Man was meant to be a Leader. But the movie was made as if that Islam has never given the right or justice to womens and as if islam just let men abuse such authority. I don't exactly know how to explain how i feel about this movie exactly but you better watch this to be the judge. My main point is, i wish they could give a better way to give the right message for this movie so that people will not misinterpret the images of the real Islam teachings.

Honestly, I could have liked this movie if its not because of the uncomfortable feeling of what the movie was trying to convey. Just like the other movie "Ayat Ayat Cinta", the movie is beautiful, if only it was not ruined by a few misleading concept about Islam. I guess you know what I mean.
