I've been meaning to read this book for a very long time which is as soon as I know Julia Roberts is filming the movie. Until recently when the movie was out in the cinema, hubby bought it (I asked him to) to compensate me for not being able to watch it on the cinema
A few friends went to watch but unfortunately I couldnt join them for some reason, but a few of them giving good review and having watch "Behind the scenes" on the E! made me more determined to get a pirated copy.
Finally on Hari Raya Haji's eve I called my regular pirated DVD supplier and went to get it. Hubby was working, my kids followed nenek to the masjid for takbir raya... (I couldn't join them) so I took the opportunity to watch my long awaited DVD
The scenes in Bali..really make me want to go there..like..NOW!!
awwww...the hot James Franco:)
I think he resembles Gerard Butler:)
I must say I LOVED it!!! I know a lot of people find it boring and slow..but having read the book earlier I must say I look forward to see it materialized on a big screen.
I love the characters...even David (James Franco) which I dont quite like in the book turned out to be such a hottie..and I didnt know that Christine Hakim also acted in this movie as Wayan (I love her tie-dye t-shirt, i have the same exact design bought in Bali last year for RM10)
My friend who just went through divorce find the movie was interesting, in fact she cried during the movie as she said she can relate to the character.
Overall, i just think this movie is a good one to promote Bali..as I watched it I regret for choosing Phuket instead of Bali for our yearly anniversary trip:(
I found out that the place where she stayed there is Ubud Hanging gardens and also four seasons in Jimbaran.
Ubud Hanging gardens...
