Incredibly Insightful
4 February 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Although the time in which the movie was filmed may put people off because of its cheesy 90's elevator music in the background, the plot and theme of the whole film is never the less amazing. The director compares two polar cultures, Indian and American, and clashes the two when an old man from India comes to America to visit his sons' family. The time base of the whole movie is set during the season of autumn which richly captures the idea of falling leaves and the changes made in the lives of the characters; which could also support that the use of trees is also a representation of wisdom that the grandfather brings to his family. His passion for music and poetry brings us closer to his character as a charming and charismatic old man, but he still suffers from the loss of his dead wife. The movie shows a healing process for each of the characters. The grandfather recovers from the death of his wife, his son begins to question his significance as a doctor in America, while his daughter in-law (a completely dislikeable perfectionist in my opinion) is still searching for her own identity and role as a mother,wife and an individual. I deeply enjoyed this movie and felt that it has made a great impact on me and I hope it will do the same for many other viewers.
