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.
Fresh: An impeccably faithful, beautifully played and occasionally languorous adaptation of E.M. Forster's classic novel.
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.
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.
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.
