In a frantic and wryly comic battle of wits, two western art collectors – one a wealthy American, the other an eccentric, titled Englishwoman – must vie with a Maharaja and his sister (and each other) to secure a fabulous prize: a legendary collection of Indian miniature paintings.

Blessed with a superb cast, headed by Academy award winner Peggy Ashcroft (A Passage to India), Merchant Ivory Productions 1978 feature ‘Hullabaloo over Georgie and Bonnie’s Pictures’ is itself a detailed and subtle miniature portrait of the manners and mores of two very different cultures. As events unfold, western high-mindedness (mixed with western acquisitiveness) clashes with Indian history and feudal tradition (also both high-minded and acquisitive). A seeming catastrophe forces the two sides to reconcile their differences and the story concludes in a surprising harmony as the protagonists evaluate and rethink their politely grasping natures.

Once again, the Merchant Ivory team has produced a delightful and often very funny film that captures to perfection the exoticism of Indian culture and the pure magic of the miniatures themselves as well as the land that produced them.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
