    Abstract:
    Spanish Abstract: Una película indonesia sobre la pareja heterosexual en el ambiente social indonesio, sobre el patriarcado atmosférico—y sobre el Islam (valga la redundancia). Poner tierra por medio, o mejor no casarse si aún estás a tiempo, es la recomendación de la directora para las mujeres. Ay, si fuera tan fácil... Pero en su contexto político, se entiende perfectamente lo que la directora quiere decir, en una película bien llevada, didáctica y más que necesaria en un ambiente social de Sumisión francamente ofensiva. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ English Abstract: An Indonesian film on relationships in heterosexual couples in the Indonesian social milieu, on atmospheric patriarchy—and on Islam (which is of course itself patriarchal). The director's advice to women is escape from the couple, or better still not getting married if you can help it. Would that it were that easy... But within its political context, one readily understands what the director is aiming at, in a well-made, didactic film which is most necessary in a frankly offensive environment of Submission. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Note: Downloadable document is in Spanish.
