8. Final Whistle (2011)

This Iranian film is about a documentary filmmaker who is suddenly thrust into a situation where she becomes involved in the lives of one of her actors. She learns that an actress who was working for her was trying to sell her kidney. This leads her to finding out that this was a desperate act on the part of the girl to secure enough money to save her mother from being executed for murdering her stepfather. Further realisations and encounters with the family of the man murdered by the mother add complexity to the narrative. Interesting story with excellent acting make this an engaging film.

9. Ciudad Delirio (2014)



This was so bad. God, a complete waste of time. It's about the annual Delirio dance carnival-cum-contest in Colombia. The central character, Angie runs a dance school while raising a child on her own after having divorced her unfaithful husband who also used to be her dance partner. In comes the Spaniard doctor-cum-scientist, Xavier, who is all goodness. They spend a night out and bond. The story is quite predictable in terms of the journey of these two souls to come together. The entire story is completely decontextualised since it seems to have nothing to do with the actual society of Colombia. There is a black transgendered character in the film whose presence is in no way explained and whose sole purpose in the film seems to be to occasionally encourage Angie to sleep with Xavier. I really wish I could turn back time and unsee this film, but since that is not meant to be, I have to deal with the fact that I have wasted one and a half hours of my life on this.
