Went to watch the movie Finding Fanny today. The trailer itself showed that this movie is not the usual run of the mill kind. And its a very short one too. Even less than 2 hours.
It’s about Ferdie who gets his letter one night, which was posted almost 36+ years ago to his love Fanny in which he proposes to her. Since he doesn’t get a reply he lives his life waiting for his love. And when he sees the letter in his door step one day he is confused and upset that she didn’t even know about his love for her. There is Angie who is a young widow living with her mother in law Rosie (another widow). The guy who loved Angie (and was her friend) but never had the courage to tell her, Savio comes to town after 6 years. Another ‘artist’ Pedro who is a little crazy and wants to paint Rosie follows her everywhere. Angie decides that Ferdie’s love story should have a proper ending and convinces everyone on a short journey to find Fanny. What happens in the way, how each of them find their peace, their love, their rest is what the story is all about. Lot of wits and humor and sarcasm and one liners make you laugh, snicker and guffaw alternatively. Lot of cliché’s too. But overall it was a fun movie to watch. One of my friend wasn’t very happy with our selection. But the other two (including me) liked it and had fun. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea and will only run in Multiplexes. But a very different one.
