"The World of Apu"
Directed by Satyajit Ray
The final part of
Satyajit Ray's Apu trilogy, adapted from Bengali writer B.B. Bandapaddhay's epic
novel, is a poignant summing up of the earlier films' themes and stylistic preoccupations.
Its story traces Apu's leap into adulthood, the consequences of his marriage and birth of
his first child. Ray's painterly use of landscape finds a poetry in the incidental, loose
textures of daily life. Music by Ravi Shankar. With Soumitra Chatterjee (as Apu), Sharmila
Tagore, Alok Chakravarty, and Swapan Mukherji. Newly remastered. Bengali with English
