Disturbing stuff indeed....
16 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is disturbing stuff indeed but remains, as was the first movie, extremely well made. This does deal with justification of rape, whether a kidnap victim needs the captor and worse that the need turns to love. Questions of arranged marriages, relationships between younger girls and older men and other difficult moral and social questions criss cross this this movie as we are mesmerised by the beauty and near perfect logic of the proceedings. Dangerous too because we are forced to question the basic freedom of choice we take for granted and hold so dear and also have to question the very basis of true love and happiness. Does fate deal the cards as we reach the crossroads or is it all just a state of mind? This film challenges almost everything we believe about normal human relationships except makes perfect sense psychologically. Brave film making.
