Related to the recent 2006 Tsunami which devastated almost half of Aceh province, here is one of the best Film ever came out of Indonesia about Aceh. It had won many awards from many Film Festivals all over the world.

It tells an epic story about the longest guerrilla war that Indonesian people did against the Dutch Colonials. The most famous commander of this guerrilla was an Aceh woman, a Royal, called Tjoet Nja’ Dhien, pronounced ‘Cut Nyak Dhin’. She led the Aceh war until she was betrayed by one of her lieutenant and got arrested by the Dutch.
Aceh was the last free region of Indonesia (which had not been existed at that time) that come under Dutch Colony, way after 1900.

This movie tells about this story and especially about Tjoet Nja’ Dhien. The cast is full of veteran actors. Cinematography and music is breathtaking, and direction is superb.
