Beautiful Movie - Great Extras,
This review is from: Water (Double Disc Special Edition) [Import] (DVD)
The Trilogy has been completed: Earth, Fire and now finally, Water. While in Nepal I followed the Indian press coverage of the riots that ensued when Fire was released and of the brouhaha that erupted when she tried to film Water and became enamored of her because she was trying to present finely crafted films that asked social questions - by telling a story that would engage the viewer's mind and senses - a delicate balance of factors often skewed in the Bollywood formula. And in Hollywood as well.
The 2 part interview on the 2nd disc are most informative and allow us to appreciate Ms. Mehta for the principled woman that she truly is - who gracefully withdrew to film another day - without losing dignity during the media and legal circuses and we are treated to a result free of the fear and tension that comes when lives and property are threatened.
I chose to watch the English version first but will watch the Hindi all the way through soon - the English dialogue seems a bit more sterile but it's a fine option especially for those who have difficulty reading subtitles.
