NEW 4K RESTORATION

Directed by SATYAJIT RAY

(1959) Struggling writer Apu — now an adult and played by Ray’s perennial star Soumitra Chatterjee — ends up substituting in an arranged marriage with Sharmila Tagore — then 14, and a distant relative of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, an important Ray influence — but even as love comes, tragedy looms; but Apu finds in his son the promise of new life. Approx. 105 min. DCP.

Reviews

“Rich and contemplative and a great, convincing affirmation.”
– Pauline Kael

“It is the kind of film one sees only once in a decade. Indisputably, it is one of the masterpieces of cinema.”
– Pierre Marcabru
