Siddhartha (1972)
 
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
 
Siddhartha Siddhartha Siddhartha
Kamala, a former courtesan, who taught Siddhartha about the birds and the bees, was waiting for a ferry somewhere in India with her son when she was bitten by a cobra. In the book it's a small black snake, but here, it's a big cobra. The scene is taken from the book, which shows that even a Nobel Prize winning author like Hermann Hesse, who wrote the book, knows that the old snakebite trick is a convenient way to get rid of an unwanted character, because everybody knows that all snakes really want to do is kill us. That's what they're here for. This trick is a little more believable when it happens in India, because a lot of people there really do die of snake bite.
