Bengali (English subtitles)
Ritwik Ghatak, one of the great figures from India's New Wave, or Parallel Cinema movement, was not as prolific as other directors of the era. This is the eighth of only nine films completed in his lifetime, but the incredible range and beauty of his vision explains much about the comparative lack of output. The river serves as both symbol and narrative device here; a source of sustenance, joy and tragedy, it reflects the eternal pattern of the villager's lives, as the waters ebb and flow along with the fortunes of those who depend on it. The film takes on this lyrical yet almost fatalistic tone, aided by the use of folk song and the touching, naturalistic performances of the cast (many of them non-actors).
A film told through extended shots of various worldwide events, settings, and creatures, creating a dreamy, universal resonance.
