'Cold  Mountain' is the story of star-crossed lovers Ada(Nicole Kidman) and  Inman(Jude Law) set against the backdrop of the American Civil war. The  story is a painful reminder that love does not conquer all and the  damage and loss caused by war can never be made up.


The movie drags a lot sometimes and becomes boring but it was a big hit. The reason why, I shall try to explain.


Cold  Mountain is not just a war story but also a story of people whose lives  are affected and changed forever by war. Inman and Ada's fledgeling  romance is cut short by the war. Inman goes away with a promise to  return and he keeps his promise true to the old days when people  respected their words and love was a passion that kept people alive. Ada  and Inman hardly know each other but the love and sincerity they feel  for each other is extraordinary as Inman says.every moment spent with  Ada is a bag of diamonds.


The  film however concentrates more on Inman's adventures in the fighting  field and in his journey back home. Ada also meanwhile becomes a farm  woman from a dainty lady under the influence of the fiesty Ruby, played  to perfection by Ren?e Zellweger. The transformation of Ada's character  under the influence of the war is remarkable as compared to that of  Inman.


Jude  Law plays Inman with an intensity which comes so natural to him.  Natalie Portman is surprisingly cast in a small role and shines through.  The movie does not have an outstanding script or story but have  powerpacked performances. Nicole Kidman's narration of the love letters  is also soothing to the ears.


'Cold  Mountain' reminds you of the movie'Atonement' and other war movies.  Though extremely romantic, it seldom meanders into melodrama, but sticks  to stark reality.


Well just.one bollywood touch. Ada gets Grace Inman, her daughter with just one night with Inman.
