Enter a world where cultures clash so violently that an entire country could split at any moment. 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.
