The opening wedding scene was beautiful. Loved the music, especially during the wedding ceremony, a version of which can be heard here: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9TcqhwIPB8). The “tradition” of “blessing” the bride with money took me aback. While understanding the concept, in practice it conjured images of the strip club and so took away from the beauty. Artistically the direction and cinematography were refreshing and effective. The story itself brought up conversations around emotions similarly evoked by movies like “Indecent Proposal” and “Dead Presidents.”
