Mani Ratnam

Mani Ratnam, der wohl wichtigste lebende indische (Mainstream-)Regisseur (unser Lexikon-Eintrag), stellt dieses Jahr gleich zwei neue Filme vor: "Yuva" (IMDB) und "Ayitha Ezhuthu" (IMDB). Bei Living on the Planet gibt es ein Interview/Porträt:

“Yuva” and “Aayitha Ezhuthu,” which premiered in late May at the IIFA awards in Singapore, are the movie events of 2004, paradigms of the gritty, hard-edged, urban cinema that Mani has made his own. Featuring a handpicked star-cast, they were rumoured to be inspired by Brazilian filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu’s “Amores Perros” – a rumour at which Mani laughs heartily, remarks “It’s so easy to classify a film, isn’t it?” and mischievously refuses to elaborate.
