The Black Garment
Sultana, a small town prostitute and her pimp Khudabaksh migrate to the metropolis, bringing with them their dreams and meagre belongings. Sultana goes about her bright and artful seductions but somehow misses her targets. Her business collapses. Desperately, Khudabaksh too tries his hand at many jobs but is unsuccessful. Sultana's loneliness and despair get objectified in her desire for a 'salwaar' that she needs to complete her black ensemble for the observance of mourning for Moharram.

(fr) wrote: Miss Sloane makes lobbying look sexy....Correction. Miss Sloane IS sexy. Despite her being a sociopathic, pill-popping, spike-heel-wearing, ruthless archetype of a career woman with a catastrophic personal life, she is beautiful, and oh so brilliant, oh so cold and oh so ambitious... I have shivers down my spine. Who cares if she is dead inside. Who cares if she does everything it takes, absolutely everything, to get what she wants. She succeeds. And goddamn that's beautiful.

That's how old my other daughter is, eight is the age of my son, two is how many times I've been married -- and divorced; sixteen is the number of dollars I have in my bank account. 850-3943. That's my phone number, and with all the numbers I gave you, I'm guessing zero is the number of times you're gonna call it."

(es) wrote: A movie I'd never have got to know were it not for my film seminar at uni where I did German studies, it's a truly strong story of a period in German history that's less well-known, but recently more thematised, the post-68 era of left-wing extremism.Two sisters go different paths of dissent in a stuffy conservative country, one remains a critic within the law, the other turns radicalised terrorist. their personal relationship and the political are intertwined.

(ru) wrote: The plot is as old as the hills and the melodrama is more risible than affecting. Also, the movie is slow going in the middle parts, though it picks up nicely in the last half hour with an amusing letter switcharoo and an eventful trip to the Sahara. None of this is to say this is a bad film, it's just kind of mediocre and of interest primarily on account of the Swanson/Valentino pairing (although there doesn't really seem to be much "chemistry" between the two.)
