Emotions versus conventions
23 December 2013 | by cinematic_aficionadoSee all my reviews

Can true love flourish? Or is it doomed to tragedy?

A pretty young girl falls for an enigmatic, shy man who sweeps her off her feet. She becomes pregnant but is not allowed to tell him. His advisers are adamant. Back home, they have set up a wedding with the daughter of an antagonistic family and marriage will put an end to the blood feud between them.

In a situation like this, wants and desires come second. Convention rules and musts show the way.

They try to kill the unborn child and fail. Then every effort is made to make them forget one another but is simply is not possible. She hears of him marrying another woman and severs all links. For the moment, the combatants of love succeed, but for how long?

An intriguing story, filled with poignancy where the power of love unfolds with great subtlety. Principles are supposed to suppress emotions and going the other way will most likely be deadly but how long can one live a lie.

A potent movie with elegiac qualities.
