Such a Long Journey is an excellent character study with more than enough of a story line to keep the plot-oriented viewer involved.
"Midnight's Children" has nothing on this movie.
Roshan Seth of "Gandhi" fame is brilliantly cast in this remarkable film from Sturla Gunnarson. The pathos of the film was of a unique and rare vintage. I was completely entranced from beginning to end. Sturla Gunnarson is THE voice of Canadian cinema.
The sound quality and photography alone are worth seeing. The scene at the city train station is breathtaking. I am so impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of the acting.
Yes - Mola Ram's side hand man from"Temple of Doom" has his own movie...and it's very stirring and beautiful
One of the only novels that has made a great movie
One of the best examples of book-based screenplays in history. Stunning characters are brought to life with flawless skill.
A movie of one man's triumphs despite great odds against him. A view of life in a busy Indian city. Sturla Gunnarsson was great as the father, husband, friend, secret rebel and confidante.
So long and so terribly pointless. This perhaps would have worked as a soap opera type of TV series, but something indispensable is missing here in terms of good filmmaking. It reminds me of "Quills" or "Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil" or "The Shipping News", in that the filmmakers present you with various characters that you're meant to identify with, then attempt to jerk your emotions around and make brilliant statements, but in the end it all just feels superficial and stale.
It's an excellent film. Very true the the book. It successfully brought out the India and all the characters illustrated in the book. However, I find this movie too fast. You would lost in the story if you haven't read the book. It's understandable that the movie-maker has to cut out some elements from the book though.
