Trishna (2011)

Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
Country: UK

Plot: The story of a tragic relationship in India.
Review: Winterbottom is one of the most versatile filmmakers in active. His talent is undeniable and can be confirmed with works such as “24 hour party people”, “in this world”,“road to Guantanamo” or “the trip”.Switching between biographies, documentaries or fiction, he always has something to say. “Trishna”, based on a novel by Thomas Hardy, despite of showing the recurrent realistic approach, wasn’t so sparkling. Some inert moments end up in a final almost amateur-style. The images from India were what moved me most in this film.
