Director - Satyajit Ray - India · 1964 - 117 mins · DCP · black and white - In Bengali with English subtitles - G
Screenplay: Satyajit Ray. Based on the novella Nastanirh by Rabindranath Tagore
Starring: Soumitra Chatterjee (Amal), Madhabi Mukherjee (Charu), Sailen Mukherjee (Bhupati)

“The great Bengali director Satyajit Ray launched India onto the world stage with the Apu Trilogy in the 1950s, commencing a four-decade career rich in masterpieces. None was finer than this deft and moving adaptation of a novella by Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore.

“In 1870s Calcutta, an ambitious newspaper publisher arranges for his young cousin Amal to entertain his neglected wife, Charu. As the relationship develops, Charu’s feelings for Amal begin to change, with potentially devastating results for the family. Madhabi Mukherjee’s performance as Charu is flawless, and it’s perfectly complemented by Ray’s expressive camerawork to evoke the tension between her character’s sense of entrapment and longing for freedom. Although we share an extraordinary intimacy with Charu, Ray characteristically treats all of his characters with profound empathy, and their world — one that Charu herself is only able to view through opera glasses from her window — is described with uncommon richness and depth.”
—Andrew Langridge, NZIFF (2013)
