amazing movie
16 May 2005 | by JHilleSee all my reviews

I have never in my life seen a movie, as touching and sentimental yet strong and intelligent as this movie. The cast is amazing, the story moving and the result brilliant. A must see. If you like different movies you have to see "Shadows of Time". I'm lost for words, the impression that this movie left on me, will last for a very long time. Congratulations for everyone who took part in creating this masterpiece. There is an unconventional ending to this love story, but I won't say too much, because I wouldn't wanna spoil it. I'm a big fan of Bollywood movies, but "Shadows of Time" is nothing like a colourful and musical Bollywoodmovie and still it's special in its way. And worth the money you'll spend for it.
