Ship of Theseus (Gandhi, 2012): Barbican Cinema, 7.30pm
To celebrate 100 years of the Critics’ Circle, the oldest organisation of its kind in the world, the Barbican are screening the series The Film That Changed My Life. Tonight's movie is introduced by Evening Standard film critic Derek Malcolm.
This epic movie from India examines
questions of identity, justice, beauty and death by exploring the
stories of three conflicting characters. A photographer grapples with
the loss of her perceived brilliance following an operation; a monk
faces a dilemma, choosing between principle and death; and a stockbroker
follows the path of a stolen kidney. An assured and often astounding debut feature from Anand Gandhi, this is a delicately poetic film from a director to watch.
Here is the trailer.
