Dalam Metamorfosa

Gambar
Pinjamkan aku sayap Ramadhan
untuk terbang menuju rumah-Mu
Mengisi yang lengang
Shaf ibadah tubuhku
Menziarahi alif, ba, ta
Mengeja alfa di lembar-lembar
usia. Yang lupa iqra

Pinjami aku sayap Ramadhan
Menyinggahi malam yang biasa
mati terbunuh mimpi dan lena
Ziarahi pintu-pintu langit
sambangi dermaga
mustajab kidung doa
Munajat hamba

Pinjami aku sayap, Ramadhan
Melintasi padang laparku
hausku
Sampai iftharku,
mencumbui arti nikmat
Tasyakur yang lewat

Pinjami aku sayap, Ramadhan
Jelajahi diriku
Sudut-sudut gelapku
Mata, telinga, kaki, tangan,
kalbuku
Puasa'i ragaku
Cambuki aku oleh laparku, hausku,
lelahku, kantukku...
Pada sayapmu aku berpegang
Hingga sayapku tumbuh
Biarkan aku

dalam metamorfosa

When I read the book, I can feel the emotions coloring the flow of the story so clearly. I can't find the same feeling in the movie. I think the emotions expressed by the actors wasn't totally reflected. This is my opinion. Though overall, the point of story well described in the movie. And I like the pictures... the visualization is great, especially when the kites fly over the sky. The visualization is amazing.

Still, I appreciate the movie so much. This is the great movie talking about friendship, brotherhood, atonement of sins on the past, betrayal, pains... A touching story of childhood memory in Afghanistan... The land of 1000 kites before the reigns tu…
