World DVD: EARTH - P896701000

EARTH - P896701000

A tumultuous period in Asian history is brilliantly bought to the screen in a poignant, funny and charming drama based on the acclaimed novel ‘Cracking India’ by Bapsi Sidhwa.

Set against the background of the 1947 partition of India and Pakistan, the growing political and religious unrest that saw the lives of every Hindu, Muslim and Sikh torn apart is seen through the eyes of Lenny (Maia Sethna), an eight-year-old Parsee girl growing up in Lathore.

Her life consists of being taught how to waltz by her mother, learning how to become an Anglophile and daily exciting outings with her beloved Hindu nanny. But her perfect world is shattered by the division of India and, in the bloodbath and sectarian strife thaa follows, nothing can ever be the same again.

A darkly fascinating and magical look at epic social upheaval and a remarkably affecting human tale that shine through it all.

Approx running time: 101 minutes
Hindu/English/Parsee/Punjabi/Urdu with English subtitles.
