Golden Egg. Medan’s First Indie Movie!

Golden Egg DVD CoverLast Monday, I saw the DVD brought by a student. The cover intrigued me. No, It’s not the front cover as it’s not very satisfactorily designed (sorry guys). What had made interested was the fact the story is based on true story of a Medanese boy who sells eggs on street. So what’s the big deal then? Well, he was one of a rarely found gem, who’s still maintaining pure honesty and refuse to take what’s not his. Rarely found in big city like Medan, doesn’t it?

As anticipated, the movie features Hokkian (Medan Chinese mother tongue) and Indonesian. You will hear spoken Indonesian with Chinese accent and phrase like the infamous “la…”, “lo…” and malay’s “sikit”. So what? Medan adapted two Asia’s culture :)
