Ada Apa Dengan Cinta? (English: What’s Up with Love?, literally “What’s Up with Cinta?”) is a 2002 Indonesian Film directed by Rudy Soedjarwo. The Indonesian title is a play on words, as Cinta (Indonesian for “love”) is also the name of the main character. As such, the title can be translated as “What’s Up with Love?” as well as “What’s Up with Cinta?”, meaning the person. The film is coloured with Indonesian mainstream as well as sidestream values, elements of classical culture and politics, and real issues encountered in teen life. The film raised censorship controversies among conservative Muslims in Indonesia, being the first Indonesian teen movie that featured a scene of a passionate kiss. The movie is known as Beautiful Days in Japan. Shortly after its success, What’s Up with Cinta? was adapted into a sinetron (soap opera) version.
In 2014, Japanese chatting software LINE released a promotional short film featuring the cast of What’s Up with Love? titled Ada Apa dengan Cinta? 2014 that portrays Rangga contacting Cinta via LINE after 12 years. The short’s success led to a full-length feature film sequel, Ada Apa Dengan Cinta? 2 in 2016 that serves as an official follow up to this movie, ignoring the events from the short film. The sequel was met with much success.
