Aruna dan Lidahnya (Aruna and Her Palate), a film about food, friendships and conspiracy, is pronounced to be a dialogue-driven film as it seeks to infer that such a genre is still enchanting to watch.
“I don’t consider discourse will ever be tedious since there’s an coercion in delivering it – That’s a pursuit for actors, to find a clarity of coercion about since sold difference need to be delivered during a certain time,” pronounced Dian Sastrowardoyo, one of a expel members, during a new talk during The Jakarta Post studio.
Coproducer Muhammad Zaidy said a review presented in a film should seductiveness a audience.
“It’s a plea from [director] Edwin to a actors and [scriptwriter] Titien Wattimena to rise a film in such a approach that a discourse becomes critical and engaging,” Zaidy said.
During pre-production, a actors were asked to watch some films, including dialogue-heavy movies, while Dian privately watched Amélie and Sideways to get a feel of carrying conversations with friends she also review a book to get deeper into Aruna’s mind.
“I can see that she’s an introvert since she doesn’t unequivocally demonstrate her opinions, though she thinks about them. It creates her rather of a pool of information and imagination for her comatose mind,” Dian said.
Edwin, Zaidy and coproducer Meiske Taurisia also discussed other films to strengthen one of a categorical topics: food.
“There was Eat Drink Man Woman and Lunchbox. We mostly discussed what happened in a film, so it wasn’t usually about food, though also a play that happened,” Zaidy said.
Actor Oka Antara, who plays Farish, described a plea in his favorite scene, that is when Aruna and Farish disagree with any other.
“There was a stage featuring a barongsai [lion dance] where Dian and we had to adjust a exhale since we’re following a barongsai. The sharpened for a stage lasted from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.,” Oka said.
For Dian, her favorite stage was when she ate kacang kowa or kacang kuah (nuts drowned in thick gingery sauce, served with boiled dough). “Although it was a small bit uncanny we had to act as if it was normal for me. we also had to contend a poker face in front of Farish,” Dian said.
Adapted from Laksmi Pamuntjak’s () novel of a same name, Aruna and Her Palate also facilities Hannah Al Rashid as Nad, Nicholas Saputra as Bono, Desta as Pak Burhan and Sarah Azhari as Mbak Priya.
Scheduled to be expelled on Sept. 27, Aruna and Her Palate is designed as a singular project.
“But I’d never contend ‘there won’t be any sequel’,” pronounced Zaidy. (kes)
