CGiii Comment

Aaaaargh...this could have been a mini-masterpiece!

Atrocious camera-work and clumsy edits detract from a wondrous central performance.

As a statement against tradition, it's mightily powerful...forced/arranged marriage, the buying of a wife, strongs necks and red rice...

Tradition...evolution's greatest enemy!
