Wonderful movie, worth re-watching...
22 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched Immaculate Conception back in 1993 and always placed it amongst one of the best - possibly because it depicted some true facts about shrines and life in general in Pakistan, something I had no inkling about. Nevertheless, life behind religious shrines as brought about in the movie gives the viewer an aspect of life that has not gained public knowledge.

Sixteen years later, I watched the movie again - difficult as it was to find it in the first place! But once again, my views on this movie remain the same. Award winning performances by Zia Mohuidin and his entourage.

A must watch!
