An interesting take on depicting the quirks of life in Jakarta that many people often ignore or do not realised it as oddities. The 3 women depicts the issues and struggles faced by 3 different social classes that each women represented. Along the story, it invites viewers to discuss the various social issues that is present and prominent in Jakarta, yet people simply closed their eyes to such issues because it is easier to do so. Despite the seemingly heavy content, Lucky Kuswandi managed to deliver all these issues and nuances through a highly entertaining story that is sure to make its viewers experienced mixed feelings. This is a highly recommended movie for everyone to watch. It is a highly refreshing addition to the Indonesian movie scene that is full of cheap, low-quality, inappropriate horror movies. I really do hope that this movie will one day become the benchmark/ canon in Indonesia's movie industry.
