The Japanese Wife

The Japanese Wife is a poem on film.
A short story has been fleshed out into a charming and beautiful tale of innocence and true love.
The film is in Bangla and English, and has subtitles, and so is not difficult for the non-Bengali to follow.
The visuals are lyrical.
The relationships have been fleshed out beautifully, with authenticity and insight.
Each member of the cast has given a stellar performance.
It is truly uplifting.
Do go and see it.

@Not enough hours: The movie has expanded the story in a very delightful way. You must see this. What was really nice was that I'd attended a pre-release function at Crossword in which Kunal Basu, Aparna Sen, Rahul Roy and Apurva Nagpal( representing the producers) all talked about the story and the film and their experiences of it. Most enriching.

Seen it liked it - esp the visuals which were stunning - the river in the storm . Raima was a bit too la di dah for my liking though but Mr Bose stole the cake. I like the way Kunal makes an appearance .
