IFFR 2012: A Temple
Movie: A Temple (Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni, India, 2011, 146 min.)
Date: Jan 28, 2012
(almost 2.5hrs, beautiful scenes, dialogue and characters. A bit unfocused plot-wise sometimes)
Plot: In a small Indian village, a man has a vision of a deity. This vision changes everything in his life: the people around him and the village itself.
Cast: Nothing special, very solid performance by the cast
Visuals: Yeah, really need to go to India – beautiful scenery mixed with fast-paced editing.
Conclusion: Well, the movie really is preaching about.. something Holy. But mostly it’s about people’s weaknesses and the exploitation thereof. I enjoyed the very long session, a very interesting movie.
