gorgeous and tense realism of life in India
This is a very focused, gorgeously shot and tense film. If features characters from the fringes with little resources searching for lost ones. With only fleeting hope of restoring a happy life with a loved one that has vanished into the modern maze of anonymity, the lead actress leaves her picturesque mountain village to embark on a desperate journey into the suffocating wilderness of megacities and the violence fostered by money. Shot with a naturalistic realism and a patience to allow the audience to breathe in both stunning natural and urban scenery, the film presents a powerful visual exploration of a woman struggling to restore a life she once had, and the looming threats of abject urban poverty that threaten to swallow her pure soul. I recommend this film for those looking to understand life for those without material wealth, and an audio visual experience of cities that most films won't show.
