Marsha Timothy is set to play the object of affection of Reza Rahadian in the latest romantic comedy movie, Toko Barang Mantan (Ex’s Stuff Shop).
Scheduled to hit the cinemas on Feb. 20, the film is directed by Viva Westi and penned by award-winning scriptwriter Titien Wattimena.
“It’s my first time to act alongside Reza [Rahadian],” Marsha told Antara news agency during the launch of the film’s trailer on Tuesday in South Jakarta. “Both of us are very excited.”
Reza said that building chemistry among the two of them was fairly easy. “She’s deeply serious in her character, and that allowed us to have discussions [about our roles],” he said.

Toko Barang Mantan follows the story of Tristan (Reza), owner of a shop that sells the goods of former lovers. He runs the shop with his friends, Amel (Dea Panendra) and Rio (Iedil Putra), and together they find constant surprises in the shop as the items for sale reveal stories and memories.
One day, Tristan meets Laras (Marsha), his unrequited love, who comes to his shop to sell her engagement ring. From then on, Tristan’s world is never the same.
Director Viva Westi said the film’s storyline was relatable for most people. “[The film makes us] reminisce about our former loves and it can also be a reminder to let go of some people in our lives,” Viva said.
Toko Barang Mantan also features actors Roy Marten and Widi Mulia. (wir/wng)
