Strong acting

‘Cross the Line’ has only two main players focusing on their lives and work. The backgrounds of the characters that are not shown in detail are successfully narrated through the dialogue that emerges when their problems arise. We won’t know much about Haris, but we can tell how much he cares about Maya by putting himself in dangerous jobs.

However, Maya, confused and empty, couldn’t go home and think about her dream of going to Singapore. A woman facing a difficult and bitter life finds herself trapped in a complicated situation.

There is no doubt about the performance of these two young actors. Nominated for Best Actor and Actress at the Indonesian Film Festival 2021 in the film in which they starred, ‘Copyers of Light’, Shenina and Chicco once again proved their good acting in ‘Cross the Line’. Their chemistry in the construction of the dialogue and even the intimate scenes in the film feel just enough, not superfluous. Maya and Haris’ personality traits no longer resemble Suryani and Amin’s friendship.
