Movie Info

Pushpakumara's breathtaking debut feature deftly weaves together three narratives about war-torn Sri Lanka, capturing the emotional and spiritual suffering of people trying to live a normal life amid the devastation of the country's ongoing civil war. The landscapes of eastern Sri Lanka are captured in long takes, and the nation's quiet rage is expressed through superbly framed tableaux vivants. Inspired by the director's own experiences, the film is deeply felt-but its more shocking elements are not for the fainthearted. -- (C) MoMA

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

The intertwining of the narratives, along with the somewhat elliptical, or perhaps rudimentary, storytelling, makes for a confusing experience.

This would-be multi-strand narrative [is] more of an impenetrable tangle.
