A teenage British girl living with her upper middle class family in colonial India experiences the pangs of first love. Jean Renoir's exotic, lyrical, and deeply moving drama partially inspired Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited. Claude Renoir, nephew of the director and grandson of the painter, did the exquisite Technicolor cinematography. A young Satyajit Ray also worked on the film. From a Rumer Godden novel.
