Filem Filem Indonesia

I have been watching a couple of Indonesian movies over the past couple of weeks and I found that they seemed to be “liberal” more so compared to the movies in Malaysia. Susah Jaga Keperawanan Di Jakarta and the more famous Ada Apa Dengan Cinta (which I watched a couple of years ago) seem to vary quite a bit from Malaysian movies like Gol dan Gincu and a couple of others I cannot remember the name for. The latter seeming to be more conservative though pushing the envelope.

I believe the biggest reason for this difference would be the reason that Malaysia views itself at the current point in time as an “Islamic State” and Indonesia still believes in the Pancasila. (Malaysia under Tunku Abdul Rahman was a secular state with Islam being the official religion)
