5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB ADAPTATION OF HESSE'S BOOK 17 Mar 2011
SiddharthaI really don't know why the other reviewer found fault in Conrad Rook's superb adaptation of Nobel Laureate Herman Hesse's book. Shasi Kapoor and the gorgeous Simi Garewal, both Indian Actors have done a wonderful job in giving life to Hesse's characters. The adaptation of the book by Rook's is also above par. The greatest plus point for the film is Cinematographer Sven Nykvist's truly awesome work. Each frame of the film is like a painting. Even if one does not care for the story as such, one is sure to sit transfixed for the whole of 88 minutes just because of the cinematography. Nykvist is, if you didn't already know, the cinematographer of Bergman. Academy award winner for "Fanny and Alexander". The rest of the cast, mainly Indian theatre actors do well in supporting the lead pair. The film ran into quite a controversy when it was released in India because of the 'famous' kiss scene and other scenes showing nudity. I think the intimate scenes are all done with much flair leaving more for the imagination. That is the beauty. The Camera captures the intimate moments of Siddhartha and Kamala in such exquisite beauty. On the whole I think the film is an extraordinary effort by the whole team of writer producer actor and director. Not to be missed.

2.0 out of 5 stars A>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>b 27 Jan 2011
By Eduard
Not too much to say. A masterpiece but a very poor film version, unfortunately the only one for the time being. Two stars for the effort and the pioneer's work.
