Heart rending and touchingly beautiful!
20 September 2012 | by coolshiv-481-460272See all my reviews

There are some parts in this movie that will lead us to deep introspection...many a times, I asked myself, what if I had been in her place? What would I have chosen? Lead actors have done a great job in bringing their characters alive on screen.

We derive succor in lives by creating stronger identities..when those identities are threatened and the future we envisage for ourselves becomes a question mark, we are led to make choices that can be life altering. I'd not exaggerate if I say that this movie does complete justice to portraying such choices on screen.

As opposed to the mainly Bollywood fare I have been exposed to, European cinema leaves a lot unsaid and lets the viewer draw his/her own conclusions...this one is no different.
