Critic Reviews for The Forgotten Woman

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • Mr. Mehta's picture is a documentary, and while it ought to be included on every future copy of the Water DVD, his free-form portrait of real widows has more than enough visual beauty, graceful compassion and understated anger to stand on its own.

  • [Director Dilip] Mehta has done a fine job of getting the message out to the world.

  • Both the beauty and the horror of The Forgotten Woman are that it looks and feels like time travel.

Audience Reviews for The Forgotten Woman

    In some ways more compelling than Water as we have the true life examples of the widows of India and the existence that they are forced to live through.
