Cinematography by Dimitris Koutsouzis is first-rate. Even the streets of Nabi Saleem, the setting of the story, are well shot. The cinematographer can do no wrong here. The story is touching, a welcome return to Greece after many years, from my perspective, to the war-torn nation. The plot is simple: a bunch of brothers are sent to a refugee camp in Turkey. Upon arrival, they are informed that they will be sent to Afghanistan, and once there they are told that it is safer for them to stay there. However, their message is not received, and they are also told to stay where they are. Eventually, the brothers decide to make their escape, but it will not be easy. The actors are all top-notch. My favourite is Pelagia Sorkis as Damavand, the Greek-American son of a village, who is desperate to get home to Athens. Pelagia is not only beautiful, but also, she has a powerful screen presence. Svetakiya Senos is excellent as the woman who is angry that her husband has left her and she needs money to support her three daughters. As an audience we are interested in her as a woman. Damavand is distraught at the end of the movie and we see this in the way Damavand looks and acts. He is devastated at the loss of his brother, who has deserted him to join the Afghan war. And he struggles to give Damavand money to support his daughters. The only thing I don't understand is why Pelagia is not allowed to get off the plane, with all her money, if she decides to go back to Greece. Maybe Pelagia just doesn't have the money to support the kids, who are now grown up. Damavand has two daughters, and he needs money for them. Pelagia is not on the plane. The other three children, including Damavand's son, are as needy as he is. Pelagia does get off the plane and she and Damavand try to find some help. The movie is not without its faults. It lacks a few plot elements, such as the main character's growth, but overall the movie is a real masterpiece. It is highly recommended for those who can sit through the many scenes where they have to listen to the sordid dialogue, such as Damavand and Damavand's brothers. I would highly recommend it.

Its a cinematic masterpiece.what else do you want from a film? A complete work of art, that talks about human emotions and how they arise and run out of control.how films get made, how the story is told.which takes patience and emotion from you to watch a story unfold.something that is very hard to do.which is also the reason why I wanted to watch this film the most.I had read an article about it, which was completely accurate. a simple story which is told with all the emotions and love that is meant to be in the film.If you like romantic films, you will love this one.But if you have ever been a film critic, you know this is nothing new.so forgive me, but I will try to explain the film in a simple way. It is about the Japanese who came to Korea in 1945, and what they saw in Korea as a refuge from the war.They were far away from their home countries.but they were still alive, and wanted to go back to their homes. To go back to their loved ones.to be able to stay in peace, and to forget the horrors of war. And this is what the film is about. It is about the life of a young girl who meets a young man who works for a Japanese government, and they make a connection.and how the two of them grow closer, and how their hearts will become one.and how their lives will change.but the relationship will be forever changed when one of them falls in love with a Korean girl, and they have to go back to the war. Its a great film, and it is a must see. What I love most about this film, is how the story develops, how the characters develop, the emotion is what you feel from this film.and it takes time, patience, and the viewer to watch the film and to feel everything that is happening in the film. Like I said, not a simple film, it is very difficult to get through. It does not give you easy answers or simple explanations to how things are. It is not the way you want it to be, its just the way it is.but its an amazing film, and a great story, and its something you would want to watch. 10/10

There are a number of important questions which arise from this film. The most obvious of these is what it means to be "the Indian." In this case it means being a cultural and historical "other." In fact, it is not just a question of being Indian in a place; it is a question of being an individual. For all its faults, this is a very good film. From the perspective of a woman's (indigenous) situation in pre-colonial India, it is not an especially interesting film; but its portrayal of a particular group of women, and of a specific culture, is. It is a film which tries to provide the viewer with information about women of the pre-colonial period, but its focus is not on the people of that period, but on the women themselves. It is as though the film were made to offer an account of the Indian women in the early nineteenth century, a time when they were a relatively small minority, and where they were expected to obey the rules of the dominant culture and to behave as such. In this way the film is very timely; as is the fact that the women in the film are some of the most important and prominent women of the era. The film contains a number of shots which would be virtually impossible to film in any other manner. At one point we see a woman walking along a narrow path, her hair wrapped around her head, and in another we are treated to a group of young women, some of them wearing head-to-toe head coverings, who are walking in a line in one of the most secluded parts of the Indian countryside. As an artist, the cinematographer deserves special praise for the way the scenes are framed and photographed, and for the way the images are presented. Unfortunately, the film is not without its faults. Although it is very good, it is not without some problems. The film includes many sequences which seem like they have been filmed in an endless loop, or are filmed in a continuous continuous burst. The actors seem to be speaking too quickly to the audience, and to one another. This could have been addressed by introducing some new or better dialog during these sequences. The music is excellent, and I have to mention the film's use of the traditional Indian music of the time. However, the film does not have the same style and beauty as the Sundance film "Winter's Bone," which I also saw at the festival. The ending of "Hindi" is less satisfactory. It is a slightly tedious ending, which also points out that these women were not 'normal' women. They were caught up in a crisis which was very important to their culture. But it is not really a satisfying ending, and this film would have been better if it had ended on an uplifting note. The film is also directed by the real-life acclaimed Indian film director Malayalam-born 'cinematographer' and author K.G.Rajesh. As the director of "The Wind that Shakes the Barley" and "The Wheel of Time," he has done a very impressive job in making such a film. I think the movie is very good, but there are a number of weaknesses which hurt it. (1) The film is far too long for its duration. At 102 minutes, it is far too long for what is contained within it. (2) The film's aesthetics and technical aspects are good, but the script and editing are flawed. (3) The film also has an ending which is ambiguous. Overall, the film is very good; but for its flaws, I rate it as slightly above average.
