Moving Work, 25 May 1999
Writer/Director Mira Nair presents the tribulations of life on the streets
of Bombay, India through the eyes of a young, homeless boy. His arduous
story is captured in spectacular cinematography by Nair, whose use of
tones and color combined with intriguing camera angels lend to the film's
melancholic nature. Not a commercial blockbuster in the United States,
is moving piece of work that deserves every bit of the critical claim it
received. A film that stays with you long after viewing!
