Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


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 women.

After the beautiful Sunita nurses Ranjit back to health following dramatic events during a royal tiger hunt, his wicked rival Sohat persuades him to risk his kingdom and his love in a fateful game of dice.

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, whose films combined documentary techniques with narratives derived from Indian myths and legends.

The film is presented here with a new full orchestral score by musician, producer and composer Nitin Sawhney, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Sawhney's distinctive compositional style, steeped in both western and South Asian musical traditions, results in an evocative, lyrical soundtrack to this sumptuous film.
