Released the movie Lion in India
New in the cinema: "Lion" - a true story from India
The boy woke up, the bench is too hard. It's already dark and the platform is empty. Big brother is a long time coming. Tired, five-year-old Saroo (Sunny Pawar) gets on a train on the siding, makes himself comfortable in a compartment and nods off again - a drowsy wrong decision that will change the boy's life forever. Because when he wakes up, the empty train has long been in full speed and only comes to a stop more than 1500 kilometers from Saroo's hometown in the metropolis of Calcutta. Despair and abysmal abandonment are reflected in the boy's eyes, but soon a spark of adventure too.
Despite his tender age, Saroo has a certain self-confidence, recognizes dangers and follows his feelings when the child catchers suddenly appear at the train station at night or the nice woman who takes him in invites an even nicer uncle with dubious intentions. Finally, Saroo ends up in an orphanage - and he is lucky: He is adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) and begins a whole new life in a world completely unknown to him.
The adoption drama "Lion" by Garth Davis is to be credited for being deeply involved in the world of the origins of its protagonist. Davis dedicates the entire first half of the film to what others would deal with with a handful of striking flashbacks. This journey into the forlornness of a child develops its strength because the film engages itself completely with the perspective of the five-year-old and trusts the strength of the children's eyes more than explanatory dialogues.
On the other hand, the second part of the film, in which the adult Saroo (Dev Patel) goes in search of his roots, inevitably has to fall away. "Lion" is based on true events and the book "A Long Way Home" by Saroo Brierley, who actually managed to find his birth mother after a quarter of a century. Davis stages this touching reality fairy tale without any emotional throttling maneuvers and leaves the audience with a melodramatic obstacle course and great reunion euphoria.Credits
