      Jean-Luc Godard Cahiers du Cinéma India is a film of absolute logic, more Socratic than Socrates. Each image is beautiful, not because it is beautiful in itself, like a shot from Que Viva Mexico!, but because it has the splendour of the true, and Rossellini starts from truth. Sep 3, 2021 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It was one of the director's favorites and the film of his I liked best.

      Lanfranco C Traveling in the soul of India. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/04/24 Full Review Audience Member recently beautifully restored, the film is a series of vignettes focusing on animals: elephant, tiger, monkey. that monkey broke my heart </3 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member every scene was carefully chosen and that makes this film universal. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Rare and difficult to find this film since it was lost for a long time and recently found. It's currently in the process of being restored, but I got to see the original Cannes Film Fest reel. No one does it like Rossellini and I do mean that in a sexy way. Intimately beautiful and slow Rossellini-style. That's the kind of lovin' I like. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
