Verisimilitude, People! – Ayat-ayat Cinta

"Out of all the jails in all the stations in all the cities of all the governorates of Egypt…he happens to be stuck with a dude who can not only speak Indonesian, but also philosophise to the point where Fahri himself, an educated young man who is no idiot, would listen. This is where my interest in the film became more distracted, and I ended up laughing out loud at parts I’m not supposed to laugh at."

An excerpt from a review of the film 'Ayat-ayat Cinta' I wrote for Thoughts on Films.
