Lean cuisine
7 December 1999 | by (Boston, Mass) – See all my reviews

I saw The Dance of Shiva at the Edinburgh International Film Festival: FAR OUT! As an American in Edinburgh I am glad to see some UK film makers haven't lost their touch. An important subject, a lavish production, definitely Lean cuisine. More please.
