Official release. Released in the UK by Channel 4.
The film that made Greta Scacchi a star; the film that made Julie Christie a superstar. Well, in my eyes if no one else. She's obviously been a huge star to many since Billy Liar in the early 1960s. Kapoor ain't bad either but this really is a two woman movie with the men pushed to the edge of the screen. Refreshing. ~ PAUL PAGE

Just a small point but it is pretty awful that the makers of the Dvd release of this, Channel 4, have misspelt GRETA SCACCHI's name on the front cover. I mean, come on. She's a big star and when the DVD was released in 2008 had been for 25 years so at the very least they should have got a proof reader to check the spelling. I can imagine, quite rightly, the furore in India if they had spelt Kapoor's name incorrectly. There should be no difference here.
The passion, violence,mystery and beauty of India are rapturously evoked in Merchant Ivory Productions' acclaimed Heat and Dust, based on the novel by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, the Oscar-winning screenwriter and novelist.
Blending east with west, and moving effortlessly between the vibrant world of modern-day India and the magnificient splendours of the Raj, Heat and Dust intertwines the contemporary story of Anne, a young woman drawn to India by her desire to unravel the scandal surrounding her great-aunt Olivia's seduction in the 1920s by a glamourous Indian prince. For Anne, it proves as much of a journey of self-discovery as the opportunity to solve an enigma as she, too, becomes seduced by the romantic and luxurious enchantments of India.
