Ilango Ramanathan's MOUNA VIZHITHTHULIGAL

Ilango Ramanathan's MOUNA VIZHITHTHULIGAL

Movie review by Dennis D. McDonald

Ilango Ramanathan’s short film (the title translates into English as “Silent Tears”) tells the tale of a father and his blind daughter’s days within the walls of a bunker during the final stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka.

Sound and photography emphasize terror and heartbreak as the father tries to shield his daughter from the reality of what is going on outside.

He does not answer her repeated question, “Why are you crying, father?” but the audience sees and hears all.

This is as stunning and heartfelt a condemnation of war as I have ever seen. The director is a successful producer of commercials; here’s hoping he continues making films like this!
