Never boring
18 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

An interesting film, which gives a snapshot of the daily struggle for normalcy in a region torn by ethnic warfare. It manages to show several different perspectives of those who live there, and the inevitable clash between them. The events take place on a small piece of land - the minefield and its surroundings - but unfold rapidly and keep the viewer interested until the very end. Some of the opening sequences showing the broader landscape are also quite pretty. Must be beautiful down there, if only it were peaceful… I liked the music, too - still trying to decide which of the two song is more mesmerizing. Not too pleased with the acting performance of the main female character, but the rest of the cast did a great job (as far as I can tell, since I don't speak a word of Tamil).
