best review ever

An IMDB user review of Peter Brooks’ miniseries version of The Mahabarata, which reads like one of those email forwards about 6th graders’ misreadings of history. Except this was apparently written by a grownup.

A small scale epic based on the Indian version of the bible, Sanskrit, the biggest book in history. This tells the story of two rival families who do battle. Plenty of philosophy and enlightenment. At times campy and the set productions are minimal, but hey, this is a fable for grown ups which will leave you memorised with all its wisdom.
