Quick Review of “Sita Sings The Blues”

by Simon on May 12, 2009 · 0 comments

An infectious, dazzling and poignant story about love and loyalty in both mythical India and modern America, and perfect proof that animation can work for adults.

Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both the ancient tragedy and the modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920′s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, SITA SINGS THE BLUES – described as “the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told” was entirely created by one woman working at home.

Rating: ★★★★½
