The River

4

"A story based on the immemorial themes of childhood, love and death," is how the French director Jean Renoir described his account of a British teenage girl's sexual awakening during the last years of the Raj. Shot on the banks of the Ganges, it's a wonderfully serene film filled with vivid images and displaying a warm curiosity towards Hindu customs.
