An alienated, Americanized teenager of East Indian heritage is sent back to India where he discovers not only his roots but alot about himself.
30 August 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at a film festival many years ago and it has haunted me (in a beautiful way) for years and I have longed to see it again.

In a rare portrayal of a teenager, this boy is smart and sensitive and open. All the characters are interesting.

The third world spirituality and visuals, remind me in tone, of THE YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY.

I would like to get a DVD of this movie.

i loved the boy's visit to the Hindu temple and to his ancestral home. Magnificent.

Shyamalan made it when he was 22. Please release it whoever owns it -- NYU???
