| EUFF Review: The Charmer (7 Stars)
I love movies about poverty and Charmoren (The Charmer) nails it when it characterizes its main character - an Iraqi migrant living in Denmark - who is just going by through odd movers and other petty jobs. He is supposed to find a Danish wife in less than two months or else he will be deported, and so begins a funny yet a sad journey with pubs and night bars and parties where the aim is one and only one: find a bachelorette and get her to marry him. Charmoren starts as a sweet film and then just goes heavy on you as the climax unveils itself. The best part is neither the comedy or the desperation that is so beautifully acted out by main guy Ardalan Esmaili but when you get what his character does what he does at the end. It just makes the film so much more powerful and compelling in its art and message. One of the best films I saw at EUFF 2019. TN.

(Watched and reviewed at the 24th European Union Film Festival (EUFF India) in Mumbai.)
