Pop Aye
3 September 2017 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A middle age architect named Thana buys an elephant and starts travel by road. He leaves home due to some domestic issues with his wife. Along the travel he encounters few quaint characters.

It is clear from beginning that the elephant is a fit metaphor for the protagonist. The movie is recommended for elderly people since there are many instances in which the aging theme is treated. Another sub-theme is dealing with the memories of the past.

Along the way, Thana also encounters greed, ignorance, selfishness or cruelty. Occasionally, there are moments of gratitude and kindness.

One of the characters is a poor man who pretends he is married with a woman that he knew years ago. That reminded me of 'The three burials of Melquiades Estrada', a journey movie that treats similar themes.

The elephant (Pop Aye) itself is cute and smart, as expected. You might learn a few bits about the pachyderm's behaviour. Animal lovers would love it. In conclusion, an enjoyable experience.
