Gritty and Challenging
15 October 2007 | by aaryakrishuSee all my reviews

I was one of the lucky few to see this movie in a screening. I have been following the film from the first time it was screened as a short and now as a feature.

What attracted me to this film is the fact that even through such hand-held shots and gritty docudrama look, the director has been able to create a web of multidimensional characters and tell a story thats not only original but is also thought-provoking.

The treatment of "Money" is very European. And Paris definitely adds on to that.

Every scene reveals a subtle metaphor of trust, judgment, empathy, faith and power through changing color and texture.

The performance was of the highest level. The actors have very successfully been able to portray the ambiguity of their character. They have brought so much realism to each scene that it makes you feel that you are watching reality show and not a movie.

The only complain I have of the film is the setup of the landlord scene which I don't feel has any place in this film. It seems to hang outside the film like a pouch and can easily be done without.

"Money" is certainly not for those who are not exposed to underground movies or to world cinema. This is for a very niche audience who enjoy the drama and character study through subtle human emotions that are dug deep into our system and not exposed blatantly.

This film is one of the most unpredictable films I have ever seen. Just when I thought a character would go one direction, I was swept away by the complete detour the character made - emphasizing yet again on the uncertainty of the human life.

"Money" is definitely a very thought provoking cinema and a great independent work of art - something that stays with you even when its long gone.
