  1. wow! glad i caught almost every single one on the award list. missed 'manjadikkuru' tho. 'Parque Vie' the best film eh? wuz good but i thought 'machan' or 'postcards from leningrad' would take it tho they did win best director and most popular films. 'firaaq' was good but i saw too much of rakesh sharma's 'final solution' in it. regret missing Alain Resnais 'last ear at mareinbad'. Ciao!

  2. Good for you. I walked out of Parque Vie on after few minutes and I didn't really like opening and closing films of this year's IFFK
