Monsoon Wedding (India/USA/Italy/Germany/France: Mira Nair, 2001)

Cultures and families clash in Mira Nair’s exuberant Monsoon Wedding, a mix of comedy and chaotic melodrama concerning the preparations for the arranged marriage of a modern upper-middle-class Indian family’s only daughter, Aditi. [The film is] joyful and cathartic: a love song to [Nair’s] home city of Delhi and her own Punjabi family. – Janus Films
