Love indie dramas and foreign films where everyone dies...and mass-market films where everything blows up! Also a huge fan of historical dramas...especially if everyone dies and everything blows up....
A wonderfully executed and heartwarming film with good performances. However, there were still some issues I had with the film: the "artistic" use of natural light was about a subtle as a jar of garam masala -- even to the point of being distracting. And strangely, the racial tensions were not sufficiently developed and seemed to suddenly vanish as soon as the issue was employed as a disturbing plot point. (It seemed odd that racial issues could have been a substantial consideration for some almost-never-seen townsfolk, yet those issues merited almost no discussion in the two main romantic relationships or in the Parisian developments!) Despite its problems, the film is charming and well worth seeing.
