    Great Movie, Beautiful Cinematography! Beats Gandhi.

    I saw this movie, reel to reel version, in the early 80s and it was difficult for my Sociology prof. to obtain a print for us to watch even then. I have yearned to see it again, and about 2 times a year I look for a copy in any format and am so grateful that it is finally here and in DVD - how wonderful! When I watched the movie Gandhi, I kept thinking:"this is just like Siddhartha, but not as beautiful or as thought provoking. There are even gorgeous 2 scenes in Gandhi that seem to be direct copycat cinematography, but since Siddhartha was not available any longer who would challenge it...? I recognize that this is not a new movie, but don't let that trouble you. This is a precious gem, that will be timeless.

    I remember!!

    This movie still remains pictures in my thoughts after 30+ years. Better remembered than any movies I've seen since. Photography is outstanding but, it would help if you had read the book to understand what is being shown.

    Well crafted and fatihful rendition of Hesse's book.

    Made on location in Northern India with India's top stars of the day, this film captures the essence of Hesse's book, ancient India and Eastern thought itself. The lack of success of this film in the USA is more a reflection on US culture and the American movie business than the film itself. Siddartha carries a message that Western audiences, lost in the unsatisfying consumerist rat race, need to hear now even more than when the film was made.
