The film "Habibie & Ainun" is no strange name to the indonesian community.

With the brilliant acting of Reza Rahadian and Bunga Citra Lestari (BCL), this film made B.J Habibie enjoy the romance and love with his soul mate, Hasri Ainun and even led him to shed tears. Inspite of his tight schedule, the President of Indonesia,Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono along with members of his cabinet, took out time to watch this film which is the work of Faozan Rizal.
