Anubandham ★★★★

easy - probably too easy - to ascribe so much of what makes this small film beautiful to writer mt vasudevan nair (the way the drama unfolds on four uneven plains, the complete devotion to personal failure and internal life among all the major character, even the fictional geography of the town) but you can't argue against the very beautiful directing of the children and especially the staging of the late scenes where grief is only bearable through a kind of transference.
