Good movie, with a simple storyline. It's good to see a movie without the big budget Hollywood expense and computer generated special effects. Beautiful scenery of lush tropical Indian jungles, well acted, good direction. Infidelity remains a taboo subject in India, not just because of ones own moral compass but because of the stigma that it carries within that society. The most interesting

A hodgepodge in the raj -- a predictable patchwork of forbidden romance, English arrogance, a gun given as a gift, suicide, corruption, deception, rising Indian nationalism and a short-lived chase through the jungle. Full Review

The story sounds great, on paper: It''s got interracial romance and betrayal, political and ethnic violence, and a faint feminist undercurrent. But the resulting movie is so pretty and so utterly lifeless you can almost smell the embalming fluid coming off the screen. Full Review

The competent, at times suspenseful Before the Rains orbits us along a trajectory of innocence corrupted, domesticity infested by politics, and local tradition messed with by a powerful Westerner. Unfortunately, that trajectory feels routine. Full Review
