OVERALL: What a rich, beautiful movie.
POINTS: The entire movie is a feast for your senses. There are times where I swore I could smell the spices and the cooking.
PITFALLS: Don’t see this movie hungry. OMG you will drool!!!! Ok, this isn’t really a pitfall but I did want to get some Tandoor chicken more than usual.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): I like how this movie deals with cultural bigotry and deals with it in a, well, real and deep way that is not over the top or preachy. It is good to wathc the characters grow and change as real people would. So as you can see, this is not really a pitfall. 🙂
HIGH POINT(S): This movie was beautifully made. Every frame was lovely and colorful and looked delicious. Perfect acting too.
RACIAL BECHDEL TEST (Website): 3 of 3 – huzzah!! We have an Indian family making their way in France. They have many wonderful conversations with each other.
