This review is from: Siddhartha [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The film is pretty true to the book, though of course the 70s cinematography cannot and doesn't attempt to replicate some of the most hallucinogenic/mystic passages directly though it does a pretty good job of evoking the memory of the passages in those who have already read the book.
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed Hesse's book, appreciates 70s cinema, likes movies set in India, or wishes to see a film of a classic book well made in a way the author just MAY have appreciated. Classic. :0)
