Brave movie about reconciliation (facing your past)
I saw this movie last night at the Dublin Film Festival and the Director was present for a Q&A session. Not knowing much about Sri Lanka, the movie gave me great insights into the challenges the country is now facing after the war. It is a very universal topic unfortunately. The film is beautifully shot and the actors are good. On the other hand, the start is a bit slow (but worth the wait) and there are a number of scene "repetitions" that don't seem to bring much. The film is clearly a message to the Sri Lankan people and the Director, Prasanna Vithanage shared that the movie is facing an "uphill battle" to be allowed to be released in his country. I hope it makes it there because it is critical to face one's past. Not a chef d'oeuvre but certainly worth seeing.
