Tamil language Film (with English subtitles) about the landmines issue in Sri Lanka. A young Tamil woman, Selvi, along with her infant child, flees her native village during the last stages of the ethnic war between the Srilankan Army and the LTTE in Sri Lanka. While crossing the fields, Selvi finds herself stranded on a minefield. Right then, Asoka, a Srilankan Army Lieutenant, bisects her. Asoka suspects Selvi to be a militant courier for the LTTE. But Selvi claims that she is just an innocent civilian trying to save her baby. Will she be able to save herself and her baby from the minefield and the Srilankan Army?. The story unfolds in real time. Written by
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).
