Mississippi Masala

With ‘Mississippi Masala’ we concluded the quadriology of the controversial (for the Indians) and pluri-awarded director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Salam Bombay, Kama Sutra, and, precisely, Mississippi Masala).

And out of the four movies, Mississippi Masala was the one that I liked the most - perhaps because it touched on various themes (and places) to which I feel particularly attached: Africa, India and the United States; the ideal and the difficulties in pursuing a multi-ethnic society; the love for the different; the feeling of being a stranger in the country where you live; the romantic homesick for your own country...

Recommended to all those that, a bit like me, choose to be (or end up being) strangers in foreign lands...
