Mr. and Mrs. Iyer

India 2002

OV with English subtitles

In order to save her travelling companion(a Muslim landscape photographer) from being killed by Hindu fundamentalists, a young woman passes him off as her husband. Their relationship deepens during their travel, but at the end of their journey, in Calcutta, her real husband is waiting. This is a dramatic love story set against the background of religious and national conflicts in India.

Beginning in September 2010 and continuing until February 2011, the Filmmuseum will feature a series of 20 films from various genres which will take their audiences into the most remote regions of the Islamic world. The films to be shown couldn’t be more diverse and together form a cinematic kaleidoscope that addresses ongoing political tensions and themes such as modernisation, globalisation, violence and perceived departures from tradition, the power of reason, and life and poetry in our contemporary global world.
