I don’t know how to write this review. In all honestly I don’t think I need to review this film but since I do want as many people as possible to watch it I thought I’d do a post about it. If atleast 1 non Indian watches the film after my blog post then I shall be absolutely pleased.
Lipstick Under My Burkha is a film that I am sure a lot of, if not most, Indians would have heard of. If you are a foreigner and not particularly interested in the world film scene then this may have slipped past you but if you do want to watch a film that showcases how India (and in most of these cases, the world) treats women then you absolutely must watch this film.
Otherwise known as The Women On The 6th Floor.
I didn’t realise just how beautiful Spanish women really are!
Les femmes du 6e étage is a beautiful French film directed by Philippe Le Guay. The description on IMDB was “In 1960s Paris, a conservative couple’s lives are turned upside down by two Spanish maids.” which is why I was waiting for the funnies to start but it never came. That’s because the description is wrong. As is the genre. I didn’t find much comic about this!
Korean dramas are very loveable. In fact they’ve been all the rage for a while now. But the problem with them is they require the audience to sort of remove their brains and set them aside for a while. Well, that may be the case with most of them but not all of them.
Train To Busan is a Zombie movie. It is my very first zombie movie actually and the only reason I watched it is because ImpressionBlend reviewed it and it sounded amazing. And then I noticed some of my favourite actors were in it and immediately checked to see if it was showing near me….and surprise surprise….it was! You cannot imagine what a big deal this is because world films usually don’t show in my city and certainly not in non cultural centres so I was super excited.
The cast features some of my favourite people (as I mentioned earlier) like Gong Yoo of Coffee Prince fame (though I love him in Silenced more). He plays the main character Seok-Woo who I a divorced father who is so busy with work that he has ended up unwittingly ignoring his child. When her birthday comes up he tries to get her what all kids her age like but she only wants one thing, to go to Busan to see her mother whom she misses dearly. With no other option, and with prodding from his ageing mother, he accepts and takes the next day off so he can take his daughter to Busan. On the train however, just before the doors shut, an injured girl falls in and we see that something is seriously wrong with her.
