Inspired by the gambling episode in the ancient Hindu epic the Mahabharata, this rare classic of silent cinema tells of two kings who share a passion for reckless gambling, and for the same woman. A throw of dice is the third film in a pioneering trilogy of silent films made through a unique partnership between German director Franz Osten and Indian actor-producer Himansu Rai
Schicksalswürfel( Visual )

3 editions published in 2010 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basierend auf einer indischen Legende, entwirft der Film des nach Indien ausgewanderten Regisseurs Franz Osten ein Drama um Liebe, Mord und Intrigen: Während ein junger Herrscher und sein Cousin im Dschungel eine Tigerjagd veranstalten, will der Cousin seinen Verwandten ermorden lassen und die Krone an sich reißen. Das verletzte Opfer wird in die Hütte eines Weisen gebracht, wo es sich in die Tochter des Hauses verliebt. Der Cousin nutzt die Liebe und die Spielsucht des Königs, um ihn ins Unglück zu stürzen. Reizvoller Stummfilm, der sich nicht in prächtiger Ausstattung verliert, sondern auch eine dicht erzählte, spannende Geschichte bietet, die ihre ganze Poesie entfaltet. Fürs BFI restaurierte (2005) mit neuer Filmmusik von Nitin Sawhney. [film-dienst]
The light of asia Die Leuchte Asiens( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This adaptation of Arnold's 1861 Orientalist epic opens with documentary shots of tourists in Bombay watching street performers. Then a white-bearded old man sitting under the bodhi tree tells the tourists the story of Gautama (Rai), son of King Suddodhana (Ukil) and Queen Maya (Bala), who left his consort Gopa (Seeta) and became a wandering teacher credited with founding Buddhism. The religious epic, with its idealized figures, takes up the narrative in flashback and ends with Gopa kneeling before Gautama asking to become his disciple."--IMDb
