I am not glorifying infidelity: Kris Alin
Kolkata: Bengali film `Antim Shwas Sundor` (Last Breath Beautiful) explores the desires of a married woman, in a controversial mix of spirituality, mysticism and sexuality.
"Religious texts speak of reaching the highest level of consciousness, but it is difficult for the modern generation to understand. The film tries to explain it in a contemporary way," says debutante director Kris Alin.
"There is a connect between spirituality and sexuality," the director told reporters.
The film is the story of a man, who turns into a powerful but dishonest industrialist from an honest small time employee of a firm with the help of a magical pendant.
His beautiful wife gets lost in the glamour of high society and becomes lonely. She engages a gigolo as her husband does not find time for her.
But the director rejects suggestions that the film ries to glorify infidelity, saying his work was open to wide nterpretation.
"I am not trying to justify anything."
The film stars actors like Indrani Halder and Subrata Dutta in the lead roles.
