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.

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

Not for literary purists, but if you like your entertainment well tailored, then feel the quality and the width.

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.

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.
