Seen 7 March 2009

How do we come to terms with grief? How does a mother and wife cope with the loss of loved ones? Can we love someone and despise him at the same time? Questions galore and in abundance in this movie about lost loves, the slow process of trying to make sense of what happened and how to carry on with some semblance of normalcy. Just to add spice to the whole goings-on, we also have the dilemma of seeing our main suspect having someone they love too.

Besides the grief stricken main character, we also have the intrigue of the government machinery. Supposedly to protect, but sacrifices were made in the name of the better good. Sacrificial lambs, innocent people, children included are par for the course. Does it all add up?

Evocative of the present time, the world after 9/11.
