Two Line Reviews - #239

Movie: 21 Grams (2003)

Plot: A single event - an accident - connects three people and alters each one's pattern of life and in the process, some serious questions on context based human judgments are posed effortlessly! Watch it to know more because what it explains is inexplicable through words alone.

  • Films with the south american flavour have something unique in them and it took me the climax scene to realise this one could be from the brilliant maker of Amores Perros and Babel. The film's jigsaw style makes the watch a super experience.
  • Apart from that the film's storyline is only ordinarily - but the fact that 'what is right and what is wrong depends on the 'when' factor' is emphasised wonderfully well
  • Performances of Sean Penn, Del Toro and Naomi Watts are admirable and so is the mellifluous musical score of maestro Gustava Santaolalla.
Carries much more weight than what the title suggests!
