Seindah Rembulan – Iis Sugianto Chrisye

Seindah Rembulan or “As Beautiful as the Moon” is a 1980 Indonesian film directed by Syamsul Fuad and featured songs written by Rinto Harahap. Sys NS and Iis Sugianto were cast in the leading roles, while Lydia Kandou also Christine Panjaitan were cast as another leading woman. Pop singer Chrisye was convinced to participate by his friend Sys NS who asked him, “When is the next time you will feel what it is like to date a movie star?” Chrisye as a cameo, used to the recording industry where he could record as he wished, was upset by the frequently laid-back nature of production and waiting for others. He occasionally fought with the director and threatened to walk out several times. After filming was finished, he decided never to make another movie. A soundtrack album also entitled Seindah Rembulan was released along with the film. It featured Iis Sugianto and Chrisye, a pair which Rolling Stone Indonesia Magz described as being polar opposites in their musical style. (Wiki)
Seabreg penyanyi pernah tampil dalam film Seindah Rembulan sbg trend masa itu, berikut lagu karya Rinto Harahap serta Chrisye tampil sbg cameo. Tentu saja bobot skenario gak penting kecuali unsur promosi kembang Lolypop lewat Iis Sugianto, Lydia Kandou, Christine Panjaitan, serta promotor Sys NS. Lagu Seindah Rembulan cukup fenomenal setelah dibawakan oleh beragam artis dan berbagai versi. Juga pembuktian seniman kumplit dari sosok Chrisye yg mulai bereksperimen sejak awal bersama Guruh Soekarno untuk album Guruh Gipsy. Kemudian sukses dalam format album berbeda, Badai Pasti Berlalu maupun Gita Cinta Dari SMA. Reputasi yg membawa Chrisye terlibat dgn Rinto Harahap lalu berduet dgn Iis Sugianto, berikut bujukan Sys NS agar Chrisye muncul pertama kali di film. Secara musical berjalan lancar, meski Chrisye trauma dgn sistem kerja dunia filem yg lantas bersumpah gak akan pernah berakting lagi. Seindah Rembulan menjadi diskografi menarik bagi Chrisye dan terus lanjut bereksperimen bahkan berdangdut sbg vokalis, namun karir tertutup untuk film. Maka video inipun begitu langka sbg saksi perjalanan seorang vokalis terkemuka Indomusika. (nDy)
