After my little poke at Bollywood earlier this week I sat and watched one of my favorite movies: Monsoon Wedding.
Tracing the two days before and day of the wedding of a modern couple who are in a traditional arranged marriage, director Mira Nair celebrates family warts and all. Despite various problems and situations in the end family and friends join in a joyous dance that even the pounding rain of a monsoon cannot dampen.
I recall when I first saw it at the cinema I came out on a high and I still get it everytime I watch it here at home.
