The Fault in Our Star

Hi! I haven’t written for a while in this blog. Hah! Aku kangen.

Tapi hari ini aku baru keluar dari bioskop dengan pipi sembap dan mata merah. Baru aja selesai nonton TFIOS. I am that kind of person who always wants to compare the book version with the movie version. And frankly, there is only few movies that could really light up my expectations upon the book. THIS IS ONE OF THEM.

Aku udah lama banget nunggu TFIOS ini nongol di bioskop. Seharusnya awal Juni udah masuk, ternyata hari ini baru keluar. Waaah, senengnya akhirnya bisa nonton, tapi entah ada apa hari ini bioskopnya super penuh. Mungkin karena Transformer lagi premier kali ya, sampe dibuka 6 studio tadi.

I had a very high expectation about TFIOS, especially because I have read the book and I’ve fallen in love with the story. It’s quite simple actually, isn’t it? Two extraordinary girl and boy who suffered from cancer tried their best to live up longer and pursue their dream. Oh God, but the way John Green tells us about their story is absolutely sophisticated. His words are beautiful. I love how he points out something simple yet go unnoticed such as while he’s using the ciggarrette metaphor. You know? When you put the killing thing in your mouth but you don’t give it the power to kill you. I just love it.

Yang bikin film ini keren adalah : Pertama, aktornya cocok. Shaillene Woodley dan Ansel Ergort make a cute couple. Ergort’ssense of humour is very entertaining. Kedua, gak ada adegan penting yang dipotong dari buku. Yapp, memang versi film TFIOS lebih pendek dan gak detail, tapi overall alur ceritanya sesuai sama yang ada di buku. Gak ada perasaan “kehilangan” suatu adegan penting atau yang memorable (unlike Harry Potter, for instance). Last but not least, TFIOS mengeluarkan semua kalimat-kalimat berkesan yang ada di versi bukunya. I was seriously surprised because not all the movies do so. Aku merasa bahwa kata-kata John Green yang ada di buku itu indah sekali, dan bahwa versi filmnya pun harus meng-quote kata-kata dia. Because that’s what makes it sooo touching.Jadilah akhirnya aku nangis tersedu-sedu di bioskop. :’)

Here are some quotes from TFIOS:

  1. That’s the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.
  2. Maybe “okay” will be our “forever”.
  3. I love you the way you sleep : slowly, then all at once.
  4. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get. And God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m eternally grateful.
  5. She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her.
  6. You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world. But you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers.
