Beautiful
20 November 2010 | by (Novi Sad, Serbia) – See all my reviews

First of all, this is not a movie for everyone. It is a blend of a feature film and a documentary, but if you ask me - perfectly put together.

The plot (if there is one) takes place in India. Many wonderful scenes from the hard life of its' people intertwine with dialogs between two main characters (who don't even have names), and their conversations with local people, in which they talk about life, religion and comfort in life.

I expect that many viewers, like the Male character, will not find anything beautiful or comforting in this movie, but only pain and suffering. But it seems to me that the movie does not even try to give any answers, but only to show some viewpoints. In particular, I remember a scene near the end, where a teacher says to a group of kids: "close your eyes and just smell". To me it seemed as if the director says: "do not try to understand everything you see, just accept it". And really, there were many scenes that I did not understand, but managed to find beauty inside.
