Peculiar Vacation and Other Illnesses

Ning is not happy in her work or her relationship. A new job in a furniture store - which looks like the most spotless place in Yogyakarta - gives her hope of better fortune. Together with sympathetic driver Mur, she has to deliver a beautiful red sofa to a remote village. We see how they cautiously grow closer along the way. While at home, Ning’s husband kills time with TV dating shows, a small street stall and pathetic paid sex.
After several shorts, Peculiar Vacation and Other Illnesses, partly supported by the Hubert Bals Fund, is the first full-length feature by Yosep Anggi Noen. In this modest road movie, he tackles issues which tend to be difficult in Indonesian filmmaking, such as adultery and sexual problems. With a great feeling for mood, the film was shot in and around Yogyakarta, where the director lives.
