Nominated for eleven Academy Awards and winner of two, David Lean's final movie A Passage To India is a wonderfully provocative tale, full of vivid characters, all played to perfection. With a fabulous cast that includes Peggy Ashcroft, Judy Davis, James Fox, Sir Alec Guinness, and Nigel Havers, this hauntingly beautiful film is an artistic triumph. When liberal-minded English ladies Mrs Moore (Ashcroft) and Adela Quested (Davis) arrive in India, they're shocked by the extreme racial prejudice that exists there.
Fortunately, kind Dr Aziz (Victor Banerjee) rises above the intolerance and guides the women on a splendid tour of the mysterious Marabar caves. But the outing turns tragic when Adela suddenly comes running from one of the caves - scratched, bleeding and terribly frightened. News of the incident quickly spreads across the whole of India... igniting a powder keg of tension just waiting to explode.
A rich tapestry woven of the clash between two cultures, A Passage To India is supreme entertainment and a visual wonder that is truly spellbinding.
