| An ordinary film which merges three different stories to speak about our world's sufferings.
It has been noticed that films which deal with multiple themes often fail to strike a chord in viewers' minds. It is due to the fact that while watching films,most viewers have a limited attention span which gets impaired when an endless array of plots and subplots is revealed.Belgian film "Altiplano" suffers enormously from this fate as the richness of its themes cause active viewers to question whether there is something which will tie these loose themes or they have just been included in order to get an opportunity to speak about world's problems.The main reason to watch this film is Olivier Gourmet-a famous Belgian actor who has acted in various well made,offbeat as well as excellent commercial films.Apart from Olivier Gourmet's presence viewers might develop a liking for the film's South American setting where visually rich religious imagery characterizes the behavioral patterns of its inhabitants.Finally,how human beings reach out to each other in times of grief is one of this film's recurring leitmotif.Film critic Mr.Lalit Rao saw this film during 18th European Film Festival 2013 which was held at Alliance Française De Bangalore.
