Critic Reviews for Siddhartha
Apologies to Conrad Rooks, but the only reason his 1972 film, Siddhartha, is getting a 30th-anniversary rerelease is the appeal of seeing Sven Nykvist's amazing cinematography restored to its full splendor.
Sven Nykvist's golden-hued cinematography perfectly suits Hesse's mind-expanding narrative of Buddhist enlightenment.
Rather than living on as reminder of India in the early 1900s, the film now exists as a period piece of another sort, namely, as a cult film of the psychedelic era.
Unless you are fully into the subtleties of Hinduism, you are likely to find it rather flat and lethargic.
Audience Reviews for Siddhartha
Beautiful scenery. A lonely quest. Hermann Hesse's novel brought to cinema. There was one scene where the main characters were traveling in a band of singing wanderers, and the music was joyful sounding. The rest aside, that was worth watching the whole movie for.
