This research is based on the uniqueness of a film produced in Indonesia entitled Mars Met Venus. The film which contains two male and female figures dating, released two films with two different perspectives, namely: Mars Met Venus (Part Girl) and which was later released a month later was the Mars Met Venus (Part Boy). The first film had the main character of a woman who in the film became the main character and became the point of view in the film. In the second film, the main character changes to the man who becomes the girlfriend of the main character in the first film. This second film still brings the same story and plot. However, this man's point of view was brought by the man so that the second film revealed stories that were not revealed from the male side.
