Wow. I'm so glad I watched Deepa Mehta's Water last night. What a wonderful, rich and tragic film. Mesmerising throughout. I wanna see the other films in Mehta's "Elemental Trilogy" (Earth and Fire I believe). Lead actress Sarala gives a wonderful debut performance and Lisa Ray is fine also. But the performance of the film is clearly Seema Biswas. That final scene! Wow. And, also, it helps to have this guy called John Abraham to look at for two hours. I'd never heard of him before, but my understanding is that he has a huge Bollywood following. No Wonder. Anyway. Water? B+
I really hope this gets an Oscar nomination for Foreign Language Film. Like, really.
And now, here's some pictures of John Abrahammmmmm
