Anne is investigating the life of her grand-aunt Olivia, whose destiny has always been shrouded with scandal. The search leads back to the early s, when Olivia, recently married to Douglas, a civil servant in the colonial administration, comes to live with him in India. Slowly, Olivia becomes fascinated by India and by the local ruler, a nawab who combines British distinction with Indian pomp and ruthlessness.
This fascination is not without risks: Saunders against the nawab. As Anne delves into the history of her grand-aunt, she is led to reconsider her own life. This is an awesome movie, I am not writing a critical review, perhaps it is because I allow myself to fade into the film, I am transported to that time and place, I am not looking to find fault with this or that. I have just recently discovered this Ivory Merchant production, a flawless gem from , interesting and amazing.
I was enthralled and spellbound with the performance of the beautiful British actress primarily Greta Scacchi, similarly easy on the eye, an apt and good role for the lovely Julie Christie, with a host of other well known stars. I don't think so I see no weaknesses as indicated by other reviewers. Obviously there is a mutual attraction between the British Officer's wife and the handsome, powerful Indian Prince, what other details need be explained?
