Before the Rains


Watch Before the Rains (2008)

A English spice baron settles in South India during the waning years of the Raj.

I watched Before the Rains with a pleasure. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. Not this one. I sat for a long time after the end of Before the Rains, reflecting on my thoughts. I'm the biggest fan in the world of movies like this. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts. Before the Rains is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.... Show more
