he vibrant cultures of India, Uganda, and the American South come together in Mira Nair’s Mississippi Masala, a luminous look at the complexities of love in the modern melting pot. Years after her Indian family was forced to flee their home in Uganda by the dictatorship of Idi Amin, twentysomething Mina (Sarita Choudhury) spends her days cleaning rooms in an Indian-run motel in Mississippi. When she falls for the charming Black carpet cleaner Demetrius (Denzel Washington), their passionate romance challenges the prejudices of both of their families and exposes the rifts between the region’s Indian and African American communities. Tackling thorny issues of racism, colorism, culture clash, and displacement with bighearted humor and keen insight, Nair serves up a sweet, sexy, and deeply satisfying celebration of love’s power.

  • Mississippi Masala

    Written on 22. September 2007 by E. Göldi.
    This customer review refers to a alternative version.

    Eine wunderschöne Story, die mit zahlreichen rassistischen Vorurteilen und ethnisch geprägten Verhaltensnormen aufräumt. - Letztendlich der Kampf zweier Liebenden um die eigene Lebensgestaltung. - Ein Film, der nachdenklich macht, der einem viel gibt!
