Film #19: Scavenger Hunt 12 (March 2016)
Task #16: A film given a five star rating by your favourite Letterboxd reviewer.

Forbidden love of oppressed people. This movie really shows the treatment of women of years past. They are given by their fathers to another man as dowry. Our main character has her children taken away because of who she loves which seems almost as ancient as trading marriage for land. The performances are outstanding and worth the watch alone. This movie plays very naturally.
