slumdog-millionaireAs practically every element of this film is remarkable, Slumdog Millionaire should be considered one of the finest films in cinema. The fact that it is also one of the most engaging and entertaining films I have ever seen, only increases its standing in my mind. The care and detail for almost every shot is expressed in the dizzying beauty of the film’s cinematography, which is wonderfully supported by an impressive musical soundtrack and score. The framework for the film, which centers on the plausibility of the main character’s ability to answer seemingly impossible questions on the nation’s most popular game show is a clever, tension building, and at times – a hilarious device. Most noteworthy of all is perhaps the wonderfully natural and convincing performances of the children actors involved in this extraordinary film (Klaus Ming March 2010).
