This is the second movie in the trilogy that started with Pather Panchali. Which was a lovely movie, but I’ve put off watching the last two movies in the trilogy because… er… I dunny.
This is lovely. It’s so exquisitely picaresque, but in a gentle way. I love the wide depth-of-field shots he’s using in most of these scenes..
… but then dropping to these low-f shots in the closeups. It’s so pretty!
They don’t treat the kittens well in this movie either!
Oh! So that’s what a synecdoche is. This is very edumacational.
I love how this movie is without any real conflict. We’re just following this guy along while he’s growing up.
Aparajito. Satyajit Ray. 1956. ⚄
