The Far Pavilions Reviews

“Accompanied by a sweeping score from award winning composer Carl Davis, gorgeous visuals and a story which captures some of the ugly reality of the period, “The Far Pavilions” is a romantic epic which incorporates enough politics and action, particularly in the final two hours, to entertain everyone.” – Row Three

“But The Far Pavilions is not just a love story. There are plenty of battles as the British move into Afghanistan, and Ash is often torn between his career and his woman.” – Blog Critics
