Labour Of Love
Set in the crumbling environs of Calcutta, LABOUR OF LOVE is a lyrical unfolding of two ordinary lives. They are married to a cycle of work and domestic routine, and long stretches of waiting in the silence of an empty house. They share each other's solitude in pursuit of a distant dream that visits them briefly every morning.
"LABOUR OF LOVE is set against the backdrop of a spiralling recession that had hit India a few years back. Thousands of people lost their jobs without notice. Factories shut down and mills were locked. Faced with the uncertainty of losing their own jobs, the film's two central characters are under constant pressure to sustain their livelihood. But even in the face of adversity, they seem to possess a serene power and their demeanour helps display a strange, comforting calmness."
