A beautifully filmed movie with only a few flaws
5 August 2001 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

I was very sad when I read the Dutch commenter's note on the film. I think, you should not have waited for a film that handles the story the same way as an American (or even a European) film would do. Here, you have to discover the situation and get involved before the story actually starts. I don't think at all that this film was amateurish in technical matters - in fact, it had the most beautiful cinematography I have seen in years! (Check out the scene with the burning church, for example.) I liked it and never got bored at all. I saw it on an afternoon in a movie theater in Paris. Of course, there were few people, but nobody left before the ending. Maybe this should not be watched by people who just watch "exotic" films out of snobism, but by those who want to discover something. The only point I didn't like about 'Uttara' was its didactic approach at the end, where the 'dwarf' explains to Uttara what the film is all about. But otherwise I found the film fascinating, beautifully filmed, and interesting. I absolutely recommend it to anyone interested in Asian cinema.
