Ritesh Batra · Germany/India/USA · 2019 · 119 mins · G · nglish, Hindi & Gujarati, with subtitles

An Indian-language indie from writer-director Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) about relationships across class and culture lines. This tale centres on a lonely street photographer called Rafi He has a chance encounter with Miloni, a middle-class accounting student with more sensitivity than ambition. Rafi sends a copy of this unknown young woman’s snapshot to his faraway village, claiming he’s finally found a fiancée. Of course, his beloved Muslim matriarch takes that as an invitation to come meet the lucky Hindu girl. Full of exquisitely composed geometric patterns and soft, burnished colours, The intriguing Photograph also works as a kind of love letter to Mumbai, seeking out the quietly redemptive spaces that are usually missing from tales of that overstuffed city.--Georgia Straight
