Movie Reviews

Perfet in all realms (Blu-ray, story, characters)
szweig | Strasbourg, France | 04/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had seen the movie in theater a long time ago. And was not surprised by this Blu-ray edition. Same details in terms of image. Juddy Davis and James Fox are really English in the characters. Worth bying if you are fond of this kind of historical dramas. Has become one of my favorite Blu-rays."
David Lean's last film and quite a gem
One-Line Film Reviews | Easton, MD | 01/18/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Bottom Line:

Another one of Lean's patented seem-like-epics-but-actually-focus-on-character type movies (like Lawrence of Arabia or Bridge on the River Kwai), A Passage to India lasts a good 160 minutes but earns its running length by developing interesting characters and then putting them through interesting situations against the lavishly exotic background of India; if anything at all interests you about the film, be sure to watch it for I doubt you'll be disappointed.
