I have been in this camp for decades, and after a lifetime of watching movies I feel as if I didn’t really grow up.
Movies are like pop songs or books: they grow on you, but once you are exposed to them, they are not a part of you. They are not yours in the same way that you are not the author of a book. Sure, you can go buy a book and read it for free. But you are not the author and you do not own the book you are reading.
Movies are more than entertainment. They are also about your culture. Most of us have come across movies that were made in our culture and that we are proud of. If you are from America the way I come from India, you will find movies in your culture that you want to show, because you are part of the same culture.
Movies about India are great because they are different. They are made by people who are from the same country and have the same values. We don’t always get to see these movies, but we do get to see films made by people from countries we consider to be very different from our own.
The first Marathi film I watched was about a woman from Madhavpur who was married to a man from the same village. The film was made in Maharashtra and was directed by Satyaprakash Dwivedi, a man from a village in Maharashtra. So I guess that is when we become aware of our own culture and the value of a film from another culture.
That’s so true. It’s funny, many Indian movies are almost entirely set in a village. The only thing that changes in them is the setting. That’s because the village is the people who are actually there. The rest of it is all about setting up one’s own home, making a good home, and getting to know the people around you. In other words, you become aware of yourself. You become aware of your own values. You become aware of your own culture.
You become aware of your own culture. You become aware of your own values. You become aware of your own self.
In terms of the film itself, it seems to be about the village, and it uses that to help portray itself as a place where the people of the village are free to get together. The film is also the first of a series, and the last to be directed by Mariano Ilgner, an Italian director best known for the likes of The Last Emperor and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
The filmmaker uses Ilgner as a creative director to give his characters depth. It’s clear that he was a fan of his films and was able to use the same techniques in the film as Ilgner. I’m not sure what it is about Ilgner’s films that makes them so appealing to me, but I’m a fan.
Ilgner also did his own short stories to get him inspired to use film techniques. His short story, “The Man Who Wanted to Kill His Wife”, is set in the same time period as the film, and is pretty much perfect for the film. The short story is a very dark and depressing tale of a man dealing with the loss of his wife, but Illgner manages to make it so that it doesn’t feel like you’re watching a typical horror flick.
