Product description

Product Description

David Lean made a comeback after a 12 year absence with this Oscar-winning adaptation of E.M. Forster's novel. Judy Davis plays Miss Quested, a young English woman, recently arrived in India, who accuses the seemingly humble Dr Aziz (Victor Banerjee) of raping her during a trip to the Marabar caves. The subsequent trial lays bare the tensions which exist between the native population and the British colonialists, as well as the sexual repression which lurks under the surface of the polite society the British attempt to recreate on foreign soil.

From Amazon.co.uk

A Passage to India, David Lean's adaptation of EM Forster's mysterious tale of racism in colonial India, turned out to be the master director's final film. Subtle and grand at the same time, Lean's adaptation is faithful to the book, rendering its blend of the mystical and the all-too human with exquisite precision. Judy Davis plays a young British woman travelling in India with her fiancé's mother. While visiting a tourist attraction, she has a frightening moment in a cave--one that she eventually spins from an instant of mental meltdown into a tale of a physical attack that ruins several lives. Lean captures Forster's sense of awe at the kind of ageless wisdom and inexplicable phenomena to be encountered in India, as well as the British tendency to dismiss it all as savage, rather than simply different. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
