Trailerama: Road, Movie

September 17, 2009

In 1994, director Dev Benegal served notice that there was more to Hindi film than Bollywood with his prize-winning English, August. His first dramatic feature in a decade is a tribute to a life spent in the cinema. Abhay Deol plays a young man who agrees to drive a mobile cinema across the desert to an automotive museum. He discovers the projectors on the old banger still work and soon we’re looking at Cinema Paradiso on wheels. Benegal’s film impressed the selectors at both Cannes and Toronto this year.
