I remember when I was in uni, my good friend was the type who can get obsess with certain movies that she liked. By obsess I mean that she'd watch the movies she liked hundreds of times without getting bored. Once, I caught her playing her current favorite movie on the pc and minimized the window so that she could hear the dialogue while doing her work. That's pretty obsess, don't you think?
Among the movies that she was obsessed with was the once-famous indonesian movie, Ada Apa Dengan Cinta?. I remember hating it the first time I watched it, coz there was no subtitle and I couldn't understand a thing they said! At that time, it was just so very hard for me to understand even a Kelantanese dialect, so you can imagine how difficult it was for me to comprehend the scenes in the INDONESIAN movie. But when my friend got the VCD with a subtitle, and helped by the fact that she spoke about the movie like 78 times a day, I started to like it too. Not obsessed like my friend okie, just liked it. She was very obsessed sampai memorized most of the dialogue in the movie and repeated them in her daily conversations.
Well, why am I telling you this? It's because I think I'm getting obsessed with the film Ayat-Ayat Cinta. I watched it again tonight on TV3 - for the fourth time - and I still have that butterfly in my tummy just like the first time I had when I watched it. I still cried watching it. I still love Aisha, I love Fahri, and I start to pity Maria more. I feel like I want to live in Al-Azhar. I feel like I want to be in their life, and feel what it feels like to be each of them. Huh, kronik tak?
So what do you think? Is the movie just too damn good, or am I getting obsessed with it?
