Intelligent, visually stimulating, a nice journey

Do Elephants Pray is a wonderfully mastered Indie Film. With great contrast of natural and urban settings as well as corporate themes being derailed by more organic themes, this movie has it all. The intensity of the journey of the main character (played by Jonnie Hurn) and the lighthearted banter of Julie Dray's character provide a nice contrast with the corporate world that Marc Warren and the office staff provide to the story. Jonnie is a believable stodgy Englishman that meets the colorful character Malika (Julie Dray) and follows her into the unknown and into the next incarnation of his life through intense physical and witty conversational moments. Malika appears to be other worldly in her infinite wisdom of life.

The crowds in the festival I viewed this had many laughs, a few ah ha moments, and great questions at the question and answer session for Paul Hills. The soundtrack is another one of the nice details that help keep this movie connected to the audience and to the story. Well done, I saw it twice during the festival and would love to see it again.
