Critics say...

"Pria portrays the complex particularities of being a queer male and Muslim in rural Indonesia. With breathtaking cinematography relaying the remoteness of parochial isolation, we watch a teenager battle between his Muslim obligation to marry and his non-conformist sexual identity. But there isn’t a black-and-white judgement here. Instead, the film is a window into an emotional conflict, in which a young man wrestles between his sacred Muslim traditions and sexual urges that throws them in crisis."
