An unique perspective and dramatic story.
26 August 2019 | by artfilmcriticSee all my reviews

The opening shots of the film are shown from a steady -immovable perspective, as we are witness to the daily routine of a Bangladeshi rural family of three that practices Hinduism. For a while it seems as if we are an ethereal presence, forever watching from a distance. Sometimes the matriarch of the family will get closer to us, acknowledging our existence. It is not until a few moments later, that the camera changes perspective and we realize that we have been witnessing these events from the point of view of a cow. When the child becomes ill with Malaria, the family is forced to sell the cow in order to secure medicine for their child. This may seem like a small and necessary sacrifice, but for this family it is akin to sacrificing one family member for another. A beautiful and yet hard-hearted movie. Highly recommended.
