The reluctant fundamentalist

We watched a film the other evening, called 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist", which traces the experiences of a young, talented Pakistani man who lands a very good job as a management consultant, auditing firms and streamlining them by radical cost-cutting - that is, by firing people.

The aftermath of the attacks of September 11 make his life in New York City very difficult, but the real crisis comes when he is sent to help a publishing firm in the Middle-East.

He returns to Lahore and becomes a lecturer, but even there he finds himself caught up in conflict.

There are a few sex scenes and the usual Hollywoodian sexual ethics, but it seems to go with the story.

But a thought-provoking film.
