  2. Greetings,
    thank you for your post,

    i'm from Indonesia, i'm so inspired and moved by his films that is gita cinta dari sma & puspa indah taman hati. it's like a time travel to see all the people from the late 70s, to see the face of the town and environment that you live in at that time kinda gives me melancholy feeling. i'm kinda sad knowing that the creator of this movie is already gone. Rest in peace Mr. Arizal, you leave your mark in history :]
