Like Stars on Earth

I'm always a little sceptical of international movies due to the fact that they have generally been hand picked by the movie studios for profit instead of breaking the traditional Hollywood mould and offering something left out of centre.

Unfortunately this DVD, Like Stars on Earth, is one of these hand picked movies that neither offers the viewer anything new in terms of content or challenge and has been done before across the globe in similar movies.

The story itself revolves around 8-year old Ishaa Ishaan who sees the world differently than his parents and the rest of the world, rather he sees the world for its majesty and wonder in an almost Austic way, however quite natural. This causes him to have a disjointed view on the world, especially how he reacts to the norms of society and when his grades start to fail at school, his parents decide to send him off to boarding school.

Hopefully at boarding school, his lazy nature will be rectified, nevertheless when he arrives, he is soon taken under the wing by an inspirational art teacher who helps Ishaa unleash his inner self and that being different is okay, especially in a world that is dictated by boundaries and regulations.

Of course the cinematography of the movie does help in raising the bar for this movie which is quite surreal and earthy at times and helps draw you into Ishaa's tale of woe and despair which of course leads to an unfortunate yet predictable happy ending, however for what it's worth, Like Stars on Earth is still an enjoyable film.

With good video and audio quality, the movie also boasts some special features like commentary by the Director and some additional features to nicely compliment the main movie. Interesting probably best sums up this movie quite well.
