Locarno Film Review: ‘The Song of Scorpions’

11 August 2017 3:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s easy to get seduced by the sumptuous cinematography of “The Song of Scorpions,” but all that beauty becomes mere window-dressing since the script is too weak to support the potentially interesting story. Once again working with international producers after his narratively ambitious sophomore feature “Qissa,” director Anup Singh conjures up an Indian tale of a folk healer (played by Golshifteh Farahani) whose savior turns out to be the source of her trauma. Singh takes full advantage of Rajasthan’s desert beauties, keenly sensitive to contrasts of color and form, yet the visual feast shows up the anemic storytelling, modeled after timeless vengeance sagas but without their powerful clarity. Evidently made for Westerners (though Farahani is affecting, and learned Hindi for the occasion, Indians will wonder why a Persian actress was cast), “Scorpions” may struggle to find an audience.

Deadly scorpion bites are a problem in the rural villages of the Thar desert, which »

'The Song of Scorpions': Film Review | Locarno 2017

9 August 2017 2:01 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A "scorpion singer" from the Rajasthan desert is pursued by a particularly tenacious camel trader in The Song of Scorpions, the third feature from Switzerland-based British filmmaker Anup Singh (Qissa: The Tale of a Lonely Ghost). After making films in Bengali and Punjabi, this myth-like fairy tale — albeit one with some incongruous-feeling modern touches — was filmed in Hindi, though Singh has again cast his Qissa star, Rajasthan-born Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi, The Lunchbox), as the male lead.

France-based Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (About Elly, Paterson) plays the equally determined female protagonist, which should help to slightly broaden its »

Film Review: ‘No Bed of Roses’ (‘Doob’)

28 July 2017 12:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Based on a celebrity scandal that shook conservative Bangladesh society, “No Bed of Roses” avoids every tabloid ingredient the story potentially holds. Through the director-protagonist’s divorce and the painful rift it causes to his family, the film ponders the big existential questions of why happiness never lasts and whether loneliness is a preexisting human condition. Directed with an assured and graceful touch that evokes the elegiac tone of a requiem, Mostofa Sarwar Farooki proves he’s a singular voice in Bangladeshi cinema. With Irrfan Khan delivering another sublime lead performance (while being billed as co-producer), the film should bloom at festivals and secure a limited release in India, despite some censorship issues back home. 

The fourth feature by Farooki is based on an affair of one of the country’s most prominent authors (who also directed films). It was considered a breach of propriety because his lover was his daughter’s classmate. The »
