Stunning cinematography, beautiful soundtrack, enjoyable film
18 December 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

We bought this on VHS and loved it. It shows India in a way I've never seen it before, far from the traditional view usually portrayed and not remotely Bollywood. This film would be enjoyed by any nationality, it's a truly international film and doesn't depend on language; it's moody and magical. Miramax would be advised to snap it up before it's too late, this film will be discovered. It's spiritual, moving, modern and mysterious at the same time; with beautiful cinematography and a soundtrack to die for. Buy it and enjoy the experience. We did. Janis & Wilson. London.
