- Putri MARINO
First love is always memorable but for one high school girl, it will be for all the wrong reasons.
Lala has it all: youth, beauty, talent, a caring family and loyal friends, and popularity. She is a rising star of the local platform diving team and she has caught the attention of Yudhis, a handsome new transfer student. She returns his affections as youthful passions run high but they soon die down for Lala. This drives Yudhis to reveal a darker, possessive aspect of his character and his pretty mask slips as abuse manifests itself in their relationship. The nastiness emerges with an intensity equal to their first passions and affects the people in Lala’s life.
As much as it is about the kids, “Posesif” explores what drives people into dark behaviour as the parents of both are drawn into the film. Perhaps possession and being possessed is all learned behaviour...
