Stunning, moving, fascinating.
20 October 2010 | by KlutzyGirlSee all my reviews

This is included in the DVD of "The River," and in my and my friend's opinions it is far better than that film, which we enjoyed. With her daughter, who was born there, Rumer Godden at age 86 journeys back to India, where she spent the first approximately 35 years of her life. She visits the places she lived and talks very movingly about her life there. She has a genuine love for and understanding of India, which comes across in her books. The cinematography alone makes it worth seeing, it is so extraordinarily beautiful; and her story is enthralling. Even if you've never read any of her books or seen any of the films based on them, you will enjoy this film. Very very highly recommended!
