Directed by Satyajit Ray
A young man,
graduated from college, is unable to find meaningful employment. His ensuing
hardships and personal grief, magnified by the tense and impersonal setting
of Calcutta, make for a most devastating film experience. While at times
reminiscent of the emotionally wrenching Italian neo-realist classics, this
beautiful film often seems to outstrip them with its overwhelming spiritual
perspective and astounding depth of feeling. Bengali with English subtitles.
