Monsoon Wedding

Chris Campbell

Yet another film that I saw this weekend was Mira Nair's "Monsoon Wedding" which is the somewhat loose, but gorgeous tale of a wedding in India with all of the excitement and stress of a wedding. A great cast and complex plot all weaves together well and it became surprisingly moving for me. In Bermuda it played in the theatre along with "When Voices Rise..." but I didn't catch it when it was playing then. Another thing I realized in Bermuda when I was looking at the poster for the film was that the Cinematographer was Declan Quinn, who won acclaim for "Leaving Los Vegas" but I actually met him in New Brunswick when I was doing Video Assist on an Eaton's ad. He was a very nice guy who is a great DP as well. It was cool since the next show he was working on was "Leaving Los Vegas" which he was very excited about. The look of "Monsoon Wedding" was amazing as well.
