Truth and Reconciliation at the individual's level
9 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Marvellous story built around the hugely relevant subject of state violence against an individual, and the human need to seek and give forgiveness through learning the truth about a tragedy. Starkly made with impressive locales that create the right atmosphere for a story about grief, guilt, revenge, and forgiveness, this movie touches anyone who has ever wanted to have an explanation for the disappearance of a loved one through state violence. The characters are played with understanding and sympathy, with hardly a false note. Great uplifting moments of how things can and do turn around. I would put it on the must watch list, and if you are a high-school teacher, show it to your class.
