Don't miss this!,
This review is from: The Apu Trilogy: Pather Panchali/Aparajito/The World Of Apu [DVD] (DVD)
I have rarely been so enchanted by films as I have with these three masterpieces by Satyajit Ray.
To those with short attention spans and desire for non stop action and brainless entertainment, these films will probably bore, but for anyone who is fascinated by realism in cinema, by atmospheres and emotions and strong sensual stories and characters, then this is for you.
With beautiful music by Ravi Shankar, the three films tell the tragic yet also cathartic tales of the life of Apu, from his childhood onward. They are a fascinating insight into Indian life that one doesn;t get to see in the fntasy world of Bollywood.
Don't delay, buy this now and you will find yourself drawn back to watch them again and again...
