I am obsessed with this film. I’ve seen it twice in one week and ordered the book it is based on.
All the actors do a great job. If anything, I’d like the film a bit longer to get more into the characters but perhaps the book will do this.
This film, will all its color, energy, grace–it makes me want to return to India. I went in 2008; four years have passed. I can recall Varanasi in all its glorious, holy atmosphere at a moment’s reflection. This is not enough. I want to immerse myself in masala, bow to a goddess, kiss a cow! I am 62 now. In this blog, I vow to go back to India while I’m still in my 60s.
This film–I won’t spoil the plot for you who haven’t seen it. Just go.
