Fresh: India is the best character in a touching if convoluted story. – Simon Jones, Empire Magazine Australasia, Jul 20, 2010

This movie was a delight of the senses! It made me feel deeply & while it starts out slow, you soon begin to invest in the characters. It's like swimming in deep & sometimes murky waters. It left me breathless.
