Another Film Suggestion




This is a wonderful film -- it turned out to be Canadian, to my surprise! -- taking place in New Delhi, India.

"Amal" is a simple movie name and serves as the name of the simple main character, who lives a simple, hardworking life.

There is a main story line, but several characters and their stories weave themselves into the main story in a "six degrees of separation" sort of way.

The movie is in whatever language -- Hindi? -- with English subtitles. Certain sections of the film are in spoken English, too.

I believe that there are people in the world like Amal. Watch the film and decide if you know any people like that as well.

Clicking on the title of this blog post will take you to the movie's site, so you can see the cast of characters, etc.

Namaste.

This movie looks terrific. We have one real art cinema in town. Here's hoping that they get it.

Thanks Pearl.

It's not on Netflix. Ithought everthing was. It got 100 percent positive on Rotten Tomatoes - never saw that before.
