Another Classic Peter Wier film,
This review is from: Year of Living Dangerously [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is indeed a great film, and was adapted from the J C koch book it addresses aspects on all levels such as emotion tension and chemistry and above all the aura and feel of Indonesia, the acting is superb and Mel Gibson was at his best around this period The Bounty Mad max etc.
Ignore the stupidity of the review which states that this story was set in a fictional city, Jakarta is of course not a fictional city, no its the capital city of Java Indonesia, This along with the Bounty are among Gibson's greatest films
