Storyline

The film set, in post war Sri Lanka, brings us close to two characters who collide quite accidentally, and through them we experience the deep and seemingly unbridgeable chasm that conflict almost always creates. Will love help them cross the bridge? Or will the past continue to color the present? A man and a woman from the two ends of the thirty-year-old bloody civil war in Sri Lanka discover that the color of love is blue, and life, shades of grey. Written by Anonymous

Brave movie about reconciliation (facing your past)
16 February 2013 | by martinaclukaSee all my reviews

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.
