Water (2005). The film examines the plight of a group of widows forced into poverty at a temple in the holy city of Varanasi. It focuses on a relationship between one of the widows, who wants to escape the social restrictions imposed on widows, and a man who is from the highest caste and a follower of Mahatma Gandhi.
This film totally blew me away. Tender, atmospheric, spiritual and intelligent, Deepa Mehta has created a perfect finale for her elements trilogy and a, well, close to perfect film. 8.5/10.
