Monsoon Wedding

ORIGINAL TITLE:
Monsoon Wedding
India / 2001 / 1t 59 min
DIRECTOR:
Mira Nair

An exhuberant family drama set in Mira Nair's beloved Punjab culture, where ancient tradition and Internet-modernity combine. This film is a love song to the city of Dehli and a portrait of modern, cosmopolitan India. Two thirds of MONSOON WEDDING was shot in an affluent farmhouse on the city's outskirts, the rest in locations in both the old and new cities. MONSOON WEDDING is a celebration of the sensual pleasures of cinema, of love at any age - anytime, and of then importance of family. It also pays affectionate tribute to a city where weighty tradition collides daily with global culture and the dot.com age, yielding an unusual and melodious harmony.
