The Ballad of the Waves
Cinematography : Very good
Screenplay : Good
Locations : Good
Playback music : Very Good
Acting : Average
The opening of the film is excellent. The director's treatment of the story is appreciative. Though the film ends in a depressing way, the screenwriter's work is commendable. The scenes shot on the beach are surreal.
1. Though the director tries his best to take the film to another level, the film is let down by the performances of the supporting actors and the long running time of the film.
2. If the film would have been shorter, it would have been much more effective.
3. Though not original, the idea of picturising the present in black-n-white andthe past in colour works well with the theme.
4. All in all, a film worth watching for the efforts put in by a team passionate about what they want to say.
