Halalabad blues

Helle Ryslinge, Denmark, 2002

114 min.DK/Feature

Romance, confrontation and hypocrisy in a melodramatic form with stints of humour - Ryslinge's fourth feature tells of Kari, a Danish photographer who is overwhelmed by the amorous approaches of Cengiz, an emigrant greengrocer who is already married. As the story develops into a dramatic finale, a colourful panoply unveils - of an exhilarating relationship, of a cultural clash, of Cengiz' desire 'to have it all', and of Kari's indecisiveness and ambivalence.
