The Ganges is the real star of this gentle coming-of-age tale from renowned French director Jean Renoir. Filming on location in Technicolor, he captures some sublime images of India for his tale of three young women -- two British and one of mixed blood -- who become fascinated with a visiting World War II veteran. With a cast combining professional actors like Esmond Knight, Nora Swinburne and Adrienne Corri with non-actors, he achieves a subtle, insightful portrait of life in a land whose wonders dwarf its inhabitants. Includes director's introduction, interviews, critical essays, more.
