Ertanto Robby Soediskam’s poignant film, Ave Maryam, which he writes and directs, is a story of lust and guilt in equal measure.

In a way, Ave Maryam could be a modern retelling of Adam and Eve. It concerns a nun who lives in a Catholic monastery in Semarang, Sister Maryam (Maudy Koesnaedi). The film carefully takes its audience into Maryam’s mind, which is rocked when a charming, orchestra-loving priest, Father Yosef (Chicco Jerikho), comes to visit the monastery.
