wonderful movie about a backpack's quest around the world
29 May 2012 | by (Mumbai) – See all my reviews

A wonderfully creative, innovative, colorful and enjoyable movie. The directors certainly had their hearts in the right place: creativity and experimentation rather than monetary gain or adherence to strict reality.

By virtue of its unprecedented number of directors, The Owner is unique. The thrill, variety and color of the movie, as the plot moves from one country to another and often from one language to another, are unmistakable. The different segments and sub-plots are sometimes witty and at times poignant. The audience at one moment witnesses fashion models, police, and mystery, and soon enough video-games, child-birth, and death.

An inspiration for future filmmakers. A tribute to collaboration.

Shortcomings: Perhaps becomes a little too long towards the second half. The first half is definitely more compelling. Some amount of stereotyping: bullock-carts in the India segment, for instance.
