Director Jean Renoir's entrancing first colour film, shot entirely on location in India, is a visual tour de force.

Based on the novel by Rumer Godden, the film eloquently contrasts the growing pains of three young women with the immutability of the holy Bengal River, around which their daily lives unfold.

Enriched by Renoir's subtle understanding and appreciation for India and its peoples, The River gracefully explores the fragile connections between transitory emotions and everlasting creation.
  • Specially commissioned filmed introduction to The River by Indian filmmaker Kumar Shahani
  • Seven rarely-seen short films set in India (1899-1945), preserved in the bfi National Film and Television Archive. Among them are two silent films showing the changes in jute production and two 1930s films photographed in Technicolor by British cinematographer Jack Cardiff
  • Fully illustrated booklet including a film essay and Rumer Godden interview by David Thompson, a director's biography and notes on the seven short films
