Good gripping and poignant story line, wonderful photography, tight editing makes this movie a wonderful watch. A boy who gets lost from the badland coalfields of India which teach him the survival instincts to survive the big bad world, and finally gets adopted by a couple from Australia, uses the modern technology of geotagging and google mapping to finally get back to his roots.
A 5 years old boy was accidentally taken by a train from his home to 1600km away Kolkata. There were many risks for him to fall down to a hell. But, somehow he survived and kindest Australian parents raised him.
25 years of his journey looking for his identity and ... just simply his home. Has he found his home and his mother?
'There are some movies that ennoble filmmaking, and this is one of them.' Roger Ebert, the late film critic from US, used the above words when reviewing 'Dead man walking'. Those words perfectly summarise my views on this movie. A deeply moving premise, presented beautifully and honestly. Must watch for all.
