This is simply a gorgeous film. The animation style, the humor, the heart and the history of the Ramayana are all wonderfully explored by Nina Paley (who, if you watch the credits did nearly everything!) The film is so beautifully crafted I cannot recommend it enough. It is available open source and I have enjoyed sharing it with countless friends. Using Annette Hanshaw’s voice to tell Sita’s story is a master stroke and will have you humming the songs days after!

Definitely an artistic film. Clever devices, especially the narrators. Enjoyable and swift. The music choice is interesting to experience in this story as well.

Sita Sings the Blues is one of the most independent, visually masterful, excellently intriguing, and very best movies of 2008! GKIDS is gonna sky-rocket super hard with this amazing masterpiece of an animated classic as nothing short of perfect. I was swept off my feet by this powerhouse achievement that really takes the art of animation to the highest level of storytelling with culture! Widespread critical acclaim go to the direction, writing, animation, themes, editing, and the characters!!!!
