Cannes 2013: 'Bombay Talkies' Review

What a fun little treat Bombay Talkies is. Hardly revelatory or life-changing, this collection of four short films from up-and-coming Indian directors is just plain enjoyable. Which isn't to say it's not also touching and thoughtful, but when I walked out of the theater, I was just genuinely pleased by the experience. When you sit through somber movies that are far more ambitious but also far less successful, trust me, you'll happily welcome a Bombay Talkies into your life. My review is up at Screen International.
