Sarah is a famous poet. Her book sold thousands of copies but she hasn't written anything for over 175 days. After an ultimatum from her publisher, Sarah becomes desperate, with far reaching consequences.
A young Indian woman works as an operator for a US bank that outsourced its call center to India. The bank's young local manager becomes interested in her and offers her to help him game the system and make some real money.
The film is about a 10-year-old boy who kills his best friend. Was it an accident? Can people be rehabilitated? Is it right that someone should be blamed for the worst thing they have done for the rest of their life?
When you watch this film you feel its timeless quality in the storytelling. Its classical, simple and immediate.
Some scenes are shot in a single take, and the actors run through their lines with a slow ease that is charming to watch. the entire film is lit in a dark and brooding way.
I think the cinematographer has done an outstanding job in adding to the storytelling, dealing with imagery in a way that expands and explains the plot line, painting with light and also speaking with light.
The actors act with slow and strong assurance, solid performances that create resonance throughout the film.
If I can think of a word that can best describe this film it solidity of vision. Puritan is film that is cut above.
