Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film is very much 'a full theatrical meal,' and one that conveys a lot of 'the multiplicity of life' one seldom sees on the screen these days. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: An impeccably faithful, beautifully played and occasionally languorous adaptation of E.M. Forster's classic novel. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Forster's novel is one of the literary landmarks of this century, and now David Lean has made it into one of the greatest screen adaptations I have ever seen. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: David Lean's studied, plodding, overanalytic direction manages to kill most of the meaning in E.M. Forster's haunting novel of cultural collision in colonial India. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Not for today's audience

This movie is very much an 80s film and the audiences of today are spoiled by a quicker pace and the expectation that characters are more well rounded and not one dimensional. It feels more like a play than a film, moves slowly and has cheap sets that don't convey an authentic feel for India. This film is simply too dated to resonate with today's audience.
