Man Push Cart - EXCELLENT, 10 February 2006
Author: ebbutterfly from United States

I sat in the theater at Sundance, watching this movie of my friend, Ahmad Razvi, and have to say that I was completely transformed watching him in real life to the screen.

The movie some may think as a bleak, no-hope film. I mean, I will agree at times just that. Honestly seemed like there wasn't a break for Ahmad. The movie is about a man who makes his living in those little metal pushcarts in NYC. Pretty much his day to day experiences, fights, hopes and sorrows. He has a son that his in-laws will not allow him to see because they believe that he is the cause of their daughter's death. His wife's death isn't something seen in the movie but there are a lot of pieces where its alluded too. At the end of the movie, you see two men pushing a cart, one helping the other. I would have to say that this is ray of hope - a new beginning possibly for Ahmad, the man inside the cart maybe for us as well.

After the movie, there is a section of Q & A which I found interesting. According to the director, he shot everything in a "box". Every seen is like that...just like life, there are boundaries. Things that we can't see beyond or even get around. That came through the movie with how dark it was filmed and even the music that was set with it.

It is an awesome film that begins with bleakness but ends in hope. Maybe its a road map for something bigger.
