Pune International Film Festival

Pune is playing host to an extensive International Film Festival. I was lucky enough to catch two cool movies.

If I were a rich man (France) a decent film about a french salesman who has had an extended run of bad luck. His wife is having an affair with his boss, he hates his car and there is just about no one who can give him a break!

Sky Hook (Yugoslavia) a real tearjerker film based on the yugoslav conflict. It’s about a national team basketball champion and his son Jovan. I thought it was really well directed, incorporating certain elements of the war to project gloom. It ends rather tragically!

When I watch an international film, I hope for something out of the ordinary. In this case perhaps I was somewhat dissapointed. In any case, Pune Rocks!!
