Beautifully filmed — 6 years ago
I’ll be honest, I really didn’t care too much about the main story. It seemed too, ah, staged and uncomfortable.
But the scenery of India. I loved all of the parts of the film that took place in the market, at religious festivals and most especially in the story within the film. The color was striking—I usually don’t like 50s Technicolor and prefer black and white to color in older films. It was obvious that the director, Jean Renior, had great sympathy for India, and it came through in the film.
