Storyline

A young Bangladeshi woman, Nazneen, arrives in 1980s London, leaving behind her beloved sister and home, for an arranged marriage and a new life. Trapped within the four walls of her flat in East London, and in a loveless marriage with the middle aged Chanu, she fears her soul is quietly dying. Her sister Hasina, meanwhile, through letters to Nazneen, tells of her carefree life back in Bangladesh, stumbling from one adventure to the next. Nazneen struggles to accept her lifestyle, and keeps her head down in spite of life's blows, but she soon discovers that life cannot be avoided - and is forced to confront it the day that the hotheaded young Karim comes knocking at her door.

Quotes

Nazneen Ahmed: No one told me there are different kinds of love. The kind that starts deep and slowly wears away; that seems you will never use it up and then one day it is finished. Then there is the kind you do not notice at first but which adds a little bit to itself every day like an oyster makes a pearl, grain by grain, a jewel from the sand. That is the kind I have come to know.

a ten
10 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really loved this movie. It shows you there are many different kinds of love. If you like movies that make you cry then you'll love this movie. I did not cry until the end it was tears of joy and sadness. What a awesome movie. The acting in the film could not have been any better, stunning performances. I gave this movie a ten. You think you know what is going to happen and you even hope it will. Then maybe it wont and maybe you don't want it to. This movie was a family drama it was captivating made you smile, cry, hope and laugh. I hope to see more movies by this director. Another thing that captivated me at times was the way the picture looked when someone was recalling a moment in the past the picture was absolutely beautiful great work by all involved.
