Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-- A thorough, well-illustrated look at how a film is made. Opening with chapters by the producer, director, and screenwriter, Joffe then presents an excerpted script, quotes from the original book, and countless full-color photographs from both production and actual stills. Sidebars make it possible to understand the film and Indian culture. This unique resource can serve as both an eyeopening and entertaining resource on filmmaking and as an unusual introduction to a non-Western culture.-- Maria Rendine, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
