Cast: Reza Rahadian, Laura Basuki, Arumy Bachsin

Rosid (Reza Rahadian) is a young idealist obsessed with becoming a renowned poet. To achieve this, he must deal with Mansur (Rasyid Karim), his nagging and irritable father. As it turns out, Rosid’s artistic lifestyle ends up bringing him a blessing. Delia (Laura Basuki), a sweet girl, is drawn to Rosid. From the beginning their relationship is fated to be difficult. Rosid is from an Indonesian Muslim family of Arab descent who still keep the traditions of their ancestors-whereas Delia was born into a family of devout Christians.

Rosid and Delia are very rational in addressing their differences. But the parents of the star-crossed lovers look for ways to end Rosid and Delia’s budding romance. Indeed, the love between Rosid and Delia is very strong, but so are the challenges they face.

The film shows the beauty of romantic love, and it also captures how religion, religious conservatism, inter-religous relationships, and identity are negotiated in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world.

Adapted from the best-selling novel by Ben Sohib, 3 Hati, Dua Dunia, Satu Cinta won Best Film, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Script Adaptation, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Art Director at the 2010 Indonesian Film Festival.
