confetti . agnes of god . the calcutta chromosome

confetti - reality show on theme weddings turned into film. all romantic fluff feel good end and along the way some silliness about tennis themed, musical themes and naturalist weddings. if it wasn’t so cute it would be nasty. But all it was is annoying. agnes of god – jane fonda plays psychotherapist to nun accused of killing her child- the son of ‘god’. a thriller which ends with a whimper because of a copout ending. the same happens in ‘the calcutte chromosome’ amitav ghosh’s dan brown type thriller about sinister doings by a cult group surrounding some blundering colonial doctors working on malaria. In both, the book and the film, it turns out that the battle between faith and science is always won by faith. and it is scary.
