American Movie director Chris Smith makes the shift from documentary specialist to feature-film director with this Hindi-language drama concerning a young hotel employee whose obsession with an opulent swimming pool at a nearby house gradually turns his life upside down. The affluent hills of Panjim, Goa, in India are the absolute lap of luxury, and when a young boy working at a nearby hotel discovers an extravagant swimming pool, his awe is soon offset by the arrival of a mysterious family at the home. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Some New Trailer For The Pool
New Review For Movie The PoolPatekar's ability to convey stoic forbearance with so little apparent effort, is one of the marvellous rewards of this intricately textured and compelling film.
Greg Quill-Toronto Star
A miraculous, American-made Hindi film that is every bit as tranquil as the blue-green reservoir that serves as its abiding metaphor.
Stephen Cole-Globe and Mail
Reality and fiction fuse like watercolors in this quietly compelling narrative feature.
Andrea Gronvall-Chicago Reader
It's a movie about a time, a place and a situation that isn't going to change soon. [Director] Smith takes his time to establish the people, the landscape and the striking contrast between the lives of the very rich and the very poor.
John Hartl-Seattle Times
It's a bit schematic and sweet-natured, perhaps to a fault, yet the faces linger.
Michael Phillips-Chicago Tribune
By pushing himself far outside his Midwestern comfort zone and working with non-actors in a language he doesn't speak, Smith has created a fable with universal appeal.
Colin Covert-Minneapolis Star Tribune
Though plot-wise nothing much happens, Smith elicits strong sense of place and teases out the film's themes ...
It's a subtle, truthful, moving story of class, ambition, friendship and romantic yearning, extremely well acted by a largely non-professional cast.
Philip French-Observer [UK]
[A] wholly unobjectionable, likeably performed but faintly soporific drama ...
Tim Robey-Daily Telegraph
Shot with a level of realism we rarely seen in Indian cinema, this film combines sharply engaging characters with an involving story that really gets under the skin. A
Told with real warmth and charm, this is a confidently handled tale boosted by natural, engaging performances from Venkatesh and Jahangir Badshah as his young friend.
Allan Hunter-Daily Express
It tells you a lot about South India, its essentially rural culture and the stifling poverty of its underclass.
Derek Malcolm-This is London
Smith's film is natural and unforced, with a winning fluency and calm observational style.
Peter Bradshaw-Guardian [UK]
Hopefully Smith will make more movies in this laid-back, poetic style.
David Jenkins-Little White Lies
Here are filigree detailing, pure-and-simple performances (especially from Venkatesh Chavan as the boy) and a subtly lambent moral tale ...
Nigel Andrews-Financial Times
A fascinating narrative set in modern-day Indian and full of insights into a class-riven country.
David Parkinson-Empire Magazine
It tells a tale so sweetly elemental and classic that it could pretty much have happened along at any point in storytelling history.
Hannah McGill-The List
Satisfying tale of marginalized youth struggling to survive alone in a cold world and dreaming of success despite all odds against them.
Dennis Schwartz-Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Shimmers silently. A quietly remarkable film, for its seeming simplicity, its careful rhythms, and its interest in a place and its spirit.
Brian Gibson-Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
The Pool is beautiful to look at, and, for what it conveys about human nature, to experience.
Liz Braun-Jam! Movies
worth seeing, primarily for its beautiful Goa setting
John A. Nesbit-Old School Reviews
Based on a story by Randy Russell, The Pool is a low-key film that often feels like a documentary...
